How to Become a Bounty Hunter

As we’ve come to know, not all the ads on Craigslist promote legal activity.

In one of the latest incidents, a Mexican national living in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, who used Craigslist to recruit drivers for an alien smuggling ring, has been busted.

José Gustavo Diaz-Velasquez, 29, was arrested on March 14 by Border Patrol officers in Rio Grande City, Tex., the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

According to the criminal complaint, Diaz was part of an an alien smuggling group that used Craigslist. Authorities said the probe began in August 2011, when ICE-HSI agents spotted about 10 postings on Craigslist for drivers.

Authorities said investigators were able to identify the physical location — an apartment — where the Craigslist ads were posted.
