Federal agents took 87 illegal immigrants into custody Monday at a stash house.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement discovered the immigrants following five traffic stops that netted six arrests in the Alamo area, a criminal complaint states. That led to a stash house where agents found 74 illegal immigrants.

In all, agents detained 87 illegal immigrants as part of the investigation, including six criminal suspects.

An unknown immigrant smuggler paid $700 to Mexican national Jose Manuel Bretado Capetillo, 27, to rent the stash house, the complaint states. Agents did not disclose the address of the residence in court records.

Also arrested in the case were Guatemalan nationals Angel Armando Gonzalez Davila, 31, and Brenda Nineth Crisostomo Mendez, 30, and Mexican nationals Jesus Torivio Cadena Bretado, 32; Daniel Gonzalez Suarez, 30, Julio Cepeda Borja, 24.

The six suspects admitted to either providing care for the illegal immigrants or helping to transport them to the stash house.
