      $500,000 bond linked to suspected immigrant smuggling ring

      Bond is set at $500,000 for suspected human trafficking smuggler Maria Guadalupe.

      San Juan police officers tried to pull the woman over during a routine traffic stop, but she took off.

      Once Guadalupe stopped more than a dozen illegal immigrants bailed out of the vehicle.

      Police launched an investigation uncovering a stash house later in the day located on I road just north of Nolana in deplorable conditions.

      Inside, investigators said found 56 illegal immigrants in a home filled with urine and fecal matter.

      In the end, investigators recovered some 63 illegal immigrants, and $4,000 dollars in cash hidden in her vehicle.

      Investigators believe Guadalupe is part of a 'bigger' organized criminal organization, so more arrests could be made.

      A Judge charged her with smuggling, having a fake license plate and inspection sticker.

      San Juan Police also called in Child Protective Service, and they removed Guadalupe's two child from her care.
