More than 90 people have been found at a US home as part of an alleged human smuggling operation.

“They [were found] in their basic clothing and all huddled together. So that’s what we saw when we got in,” he said.

No children were among the victims.

Authorities initially served a search warrant at the house after someone called police to report a loved one was being held there, Mr Edwards said.

At least several of the people showed symptoms of COVID-19 infection, including fever and lack of taste or smell, Mr Edwards said.

The victims told police they had not eaten recently.

They were issued personal protective gear and put onto white buses. It was not immediately clear where they were being taken.

Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were seen at the house along with local police and firefighters.

Mr Edwards said no arrests had been made in the case as of Friday afternoon (local time) and declined to offer further details, citing the ongoing investigation.
