Suspected human traffickers arrested in Floyd County

FLOYD COUNTY (KCBD) - On Saturday, a Floyd County deputy spotted two cars running together and speeding along US 70. 

The sheriff there said the deputy tried to pull over the lead car when the second car attempted to run him off the road.

The sheriff said the deputy stopped that second vehicle and found four illegal immigrants traveling from Dallas to California.

Later, the deputy stopped the other vehicle and found more illegal immigrants as well as a controlled substance.

The deputy also found ledgers and believes the men were paying the drivers to take them across the country. 

The sheriff said human and drug traffickers are coming through their area daily.
