    Oklahoma City, OK

    Oklahoma fugitive operations team shuts down stolen-car 'chop shop' and arrests 2 aliens for illegal possession of firearms

    OKLAHOMA CITY ó While targeting a previously deported illegal alien, officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) discovered another illegal alien who was in possession methamphetamine and was allegedly operating a "chop shop" to dismantle stolen cars.ERO Fugitive Operations team members from Oklahoma City, working with ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), targeted Luis Armando Saenz-Gutierrez, 36, from Mexico. Saenz-Gutierrez had been convicted in Oklahoma in 2009 of drug trafficking, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. In 2011, he was released early from prison under Oklahoma's Rapid Repatriation Act and was deported by ERO. Under this Act, aliens who violate the terms of their release and illegally re-enter the United States must serve the remainder of their Oklahoma state prison sentences, and they may also be prosecuted federally. Anyone who re-enters the United States after having been previously deported commits a felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

    After arriving at Saenz-Gutierrez's house in Oklahoma City, ERO officers encountered Francisco Hernandez-Seguame, 26, exiting the residence. They determined that Hernandez-Seguame was also from Mexico and was illegally in the United States. HSI special agents secured a search warrant for the house, and located and arrested Saenz-Gutierrez. In the house, they also discovered three handguns, one sawed-off shotgun and various calibers of ammunition. It is unlawful for illegal aliens to possess firearms in the United States.
    ERO officers then visited the Oklahoma City apartment of Hernandez-Seguame, where they received consent to search the apartment for the woman who resided there. During that search, officers discovered a plastic bag filled with about one-half pound of methamphetamine.

    The street value of the methamphetamine was estimated at about $4,000.

    From the interviews conducted, ERO officers and HSI special agents determined that Hernandez-Seguame dismantled stolen cars in a vacant lot adjacent to the house where Saenz-Gutierrez was located. Officers recovered four stolen vehicles from the lot, as well as an illegal sawed-off shotgun with ammunition.

    "This ICE team effort between our ERO officers and HSI special agents removed two dangerous criminals from Oklahoma City streets," said Simona L. Flores, field office director of ERO Dallas. "Ultimately, our operations help improve public safety."

    Hampton Roads Border Security Enforcement Taskforce intercepts 35 kilos of cocaine in 2 weeks


    NORFOLK, Va. ó The Hampton Roads-based multi-agency Border Enforcement Security Task Force has seized approximately 35 kilograms of cocaine at the Port of Norfolk in the past two weeks in separate drug smuggling ventures.

    The Hampton Roads Border Enforcement Security Taskforce is comprised of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Coast Guard and other law enforcement partners.

    In the first seizure, which occurred July 27, the task force seized 32 kilograms of cocaine off of a vessel arriving into the Port of Norfolk. Prior to the vessel arriving in Hampton Roads, HSI special agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, and Coast Guardsmen boarded the vessel and discovered the cocaine hidden in one of the vessel cargo holds. The cocaine, which has an estimated street value of about $1 million, is believed to have come from Colombia and was destined for Europe. None of the crewmembers were suspected of being involved and no arrests were made.

    A second seizure occurred Aug. 4 when the task force seized three kilograms of cocaine. The narcotics were taken off of a container vessel that was due into Hampton Roads. This seizure resulted in the arrest of two individuals, neither of whom were ship crewmembers. This investigation is ongoing.

    "These enforcement actions demonstrate that law enforcement agencies working together under the auspices of the BEST, are positioned to disrupt and dismantle smuggling organizations' efforts to bring their illicit goods into the United States," said John P. Torres, special agent in charge of HSI. "The Hampton Roads BEST is host to Homeland Security Investigations, Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Coast Guard with other federal, state and local law enforcement partners to bring together the strengths of each agency into one united front."

    "I am very proud of the work of my officers and the BEST," said Mark J. Laria, CBP area port director. "This seizure is further evidence of how the law enforcement authorities in Hampton Roads can quickly pull together as a team to protect the citizens of Hampton Roads and the country."

    The Hampton Roads Border Enforcement Security Taskforce was formed in July 2011 and is comprised of officers and agents from ten federal, state and local agencies. Team members are responsible for identifying, interdicting and investigating a wide variety of maritime-related crime including trade fraud, cargo theft and the illegal smuggling of drugs, persons, currency and weapons.
