More than 20 suspected illegal immigrants are now in custody after federal agents raided a home in northwest Harris County.

Sheriff's deputies found the suspected illegals in a house on Breen near Antoine. They say one of the illegals had escaped the house a couple weeks ago and went to a nearby church for help.

The pastor recently called sheriff's deputies. When they got to the house Monday, they found 24 people locked in rooms. They were all rounded up.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement authorities say the 19 males and five females were from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.

Just last week police found nearly 30 illegal immigrants at two separate stash houses.
