    California man charged in Summit County with human smuggling

    Jan. 26, 2019

    An officer with the Department of Homeland Security arrested a man in Summit County on Jan. 19 after, prosecutors allege, the officer found eight immigrants hiding in the man's vehicle during a traffic stop.

    Rolando Gomez-Gomez, 33, of Los Angeles, was charged in Summit County's 3rd District Court on Jan. 22 with human smuggling, a third-degree felony; providing false personal information to a peace officer, a class C misdemeanor; and speeding.

    A probable cause statement shows that a task force officer with the Homeland Security Investigations Criminal Interdiction Team stopped Gomez-Gomez's vehicle while it was traveling eastbound on Interstate 80 in Summit County. The officer said the vehicle was traveling 78 mph in a 70-mph zone and swerving.

    Court documents state that, when the officer stopped the vehicle, he noticed eight men "attempting to hide." Gomez-Gomez initially gave the officer a false identification card with a different name, claiming he did not know his passengers, according to the charges. The officer's search of a federal database revealed his true identity and that he had been stopped several times for smuggling.

    Prosecutors allege the men in the vehicle told law enforcement they had paid Gomez-Gomez to take them to other states, including Nebraska and New Jersey. Gomez-Gomez later allegedly admitted to transporting the men for money and taking other immigrants on trips throughout the country on other occasions.

    As of Thursday, Gomez-Gomez was in custody at the Summit County Jail. He was being held on an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement hold.

    Good thing it was someone with DHS that stopped the guy because if it would have been local law enforcement he probably would have only received a speeding citation and sent on his merry way. Remember, this is California we're talking about.
