Human Trafficking Suspect Arrested

Deputies with Constable Ted Heap's Office have been cracking down on fraudulent temporary license plates. This morning, deputies who stopped a driver using a fake temporary tag found a lot more than they bargained for.

The driver who was pulled over in the 800 block of West Sam Houston Tollway North had an outstanding arrest warrant from January 2021 for smuggling undocumented immigrants.

Ignacio Diaz-Penaloza, 41, was arrested and taken to the Harris County Jail where he will be turned over to the United States Marshals Service. #constabletedheap #yourconstable
