The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office was conducting enforcement operations on Interstate 10 around 9 a.m. this morning when a stop was conducted for a traffic violation.

The driver, 44-year old Jose Figueroa of Beaufort, South Carolina was transporting two illegal aliens in the vehicle with him, taking them to Georgia for “work”. It was later determined that Figueroa picked up one passenger in Texas and the other in Louisiana to take them to Georgia for $1100.

He had half the money on him and said he was to receive the other half when he dropped them off.

Figueroa was placed under arrest for Human Trafficking and transported to the Okaloosa County Jail.
