A former Texas Department of Public Safety trooper is facing federal charges after he was arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle illegal immigrants to Houston.
Marvin Davis, 47, was pulled over Thursday along Highway 59 North in Fort Bend County for illegal window tinting. According to federal court documents, Davis told the trooper he worked for DPS.
Court papers state Davis had a vest inside his blacked-out SUVs that read “State Police” and even a mounted laptop computer. The trooper noticed two men in the back seat, and decided to run Davis’ plates. The plate information came back to Davis and a state-issued vehicle.
