BATON ROUGE - The U. S. Attorney's Office in Baton Rouge said a federal grand jury indicted a man for smuggling undocumented Mexican residents into the country last month.

The indictment accused 27-year-old Sabino Guerrero-Estrada of transporting migrants illegally within the U.S. for commercial or private financial gain.

According to the indictment, Guerrero-Estrada was caught on Oct. 17 driving an SUV with people in the country illegally on I-12 in Baton Rouge. Investigators said six of the people being transported had previously been deported from the U.S., and were also indicted for illegal re-entry.

This case was investigated by the Baton Rouge offices of the U.S. Border Patrol and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations.
