    A Houston man is facing a human smuggling charge after deputies said he tried to illegally bring a man into Florida.

    Luis Armando Sifuentes Botello, 45, is facing charges of operating a vehicle without a valid license, giving false identification to a law enforcement officer and smuggling a human into the state. He remains in custody at the Lee County Jail.

    On Wednesday, deputies conducted a traffic stop on Corkscrew Road near I-75 of a Chevrolet Suburban with a Texas license plate and inoperable tag light, according to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office report.

    The driver, identified as Sifuentes Botello, told deputies he was coming from Jupiter, where he dropped off friends looking for work.

    A female passenger in the vehicle told deputies they were on their way from Texas to Bonita Springs to look for work picking oranges.

    Deputies then questioned a second passenger, who said he came to Florida to look for work to provide for his family.

    He told deputies he did not know the driver and other passenger by name.

    Deputies said they searched the vehicle and found evidence of human smuggling including $4,628 in cash in the female passenger’s wallet.

    Sifuentes Botello was taken into custody and the two passengers were later released.

    sounds like to me a man making some money driving people and dropping them off without even a license, The thing is he he drove from Texas to Florida without one. They have no fear of our laws, they think they are above them.
