Houston- An Alice woman was arrested in Houston Tuesday after she led U.S. Marshals and Houston police officers on a chase.
Houston police officials received a call from the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department in reference to 42-year-old Jennifer Zamora in their area.
Officers located Zamora and the chase began. Officers caught up with her at a business. She was transported to the Harris County jail and charged with evading arrest detention with a motor vehicle.
Zamora was arrested in JWC in August 2014 for trafficking of persons after a Department of Public Safety trooper pulled her over on North Highway 281.
The trooper initiated the traffic stop on a Ford F-250 towing a travel trailer Zamora was driving when he observed three children unsecured in the vehicle.
According to officials, the trooper became suspicious when Zamora's story didn't add up. Zamora's travel destination did not match the route she was taking nor did her reason for being in the area.
The trooper asked Zamora for consent to search the vehicle which Zamora agreed. The trooper found 15 undocumented immigrants, 14 men and one woman, in the trailer Zamora was towing. The immigrants were turned over to Border Patrol and the children in the vehicle were handed over to their father.
According to Capt. Brandon Torres with the JWC Sheriff's Department, Zamora will face charges in Houston before she can be brought back to Jim Wells County.
Zamora has a $10,000 bond in Houston and remains in their custody as of Thursday afternoon.
