SAN ANTONIO – Two people are facing smuggling charges after federal authorities raided a stash house on the far west side Sunday afternoon.

Eleven people suspected of entering the country illegally were taken into custody after an investigation headed by the Department of Homeland Security led authorities to a home on West Haven Place just North of Highway 90.
