Wanted Illegal Alien Arrested in Detroit

DETROIT— U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Detroit Station have arrested a Honduran national wanted for numerous counts of criminal sexual conduct in Detroit.

U.S. Border Patrol agents working in conjunction with the Detroit Police Department arrested the 24-year-old Honduran national who is illegally present in the United States and also wanted for criminal conduct of a minor in Detroit, Michigan. The subject was taken into custody without incident during a traffic stop early Thursday morning and transported to the Detroit Border Patrol Station for processing.

During processing, it was confirmed the subject currently has a warrant out of 36th District Court that includes 3 counts of Felony 1st degree criminal sexual conduct of a minor and 1 count Felony 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct of a minor.

Upon completion of processing, the subject was transported and transferred to the custody of the Detroit Police Department.

“This is a great example of how law enforcement agencies can work together to make our communities a safer place to work and live,” said Acting Chief Patrol Agent Alan Booth. “My hat goes off to the Agents and Officers who worked tirelessly to locate and arrest this individual today.”

Additionally, the U.S. Border Patrol has filed an I-247 detainer on the subject who is illegally present in the United States. The detainer allows the U.S. Border Patrol to take custody of the subject once his current case is complete.

Criminal charges are merely allegations. All defendants in criminal proceedings are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
