ICE in Owensboro: Arrest Information Released

Two fugitives were among five people arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in Owensboro September 28th, 2017.

According to ICE officials, these arrests were part of a targeted routine enforcement operation. 

Here is the information ICE gave Eyewitness News about the people arrested:

  • A 35-year-old man from Mexico who was an ICE fugitive with convictions for public intoxication, assault, theft and driving under the influence and violation of emergency protection orders.
  • A 28-year-old woman from Mexico who was an ICE fugitive with convictions for driving under the influence and an active warrant from Daviess County for failure to pay fines associated with the conviction. 
  • A 28-year-old man from Guatemala with convictions for assault-domestic violence (minor injury) and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
  • A 28-year-old woman from Mexico who had been voluntarily returned to Mexico in 2006.
  • A 20-year-old man from Mexico who was denied a visa in 2008, and had a false Form I-9, which is used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. 

ICE representatives stress their officers were not at any local schools arresting parents after they dropped of their children. Per agency policy: Officers avoid conducting enforcement activities at sensitive locations unless they have prior approval from an appropriate supervisory official or in the event of exigent circumstances.

The agency defines an ICE fugitive an alien who has failed to leave the United States based upon a final order of removal, deportation or exclusion, or who has failed to report to ICE after receiving notice to do so.

We are working to further identify the people arrested. We will update you as we learn more about this situation.
