BATON ROUGE - A federal grand jury returned four indictments in connection with an investigation into the transportation of illegal aliens through Louisiana.

On Wednesday, 69-year-old Pedro Torrell-Matos was indicted for transporting illegal aliens within the United States. In a related matter, the Department of Justice said three other individuals - David Gazpar-Godinez, Estuquio Orozco-Velazquez and Simon Cruz-Pena - were also indicted by the grand jury. Each stand charged with illegal re-entry into the U.S. by a previously deported alien.

The Baton Rouge offices of the U.S. Border Patrol and Homeland Security are investigating the matter.
