Police nab illegal immigrant wanted for homicide
(Update 10:10 a.m.)
DANBURY -- City police and federal authorities arrested a man from Brazil wanted for murder in his homeland.

Gerson Christiano Dias, of First Street, was picked up by Danbury police and federal officials Thursday. Local detectives were acting on a tip from Brazilian authorities that Dias was in Danbury. Dias was wanted by police in Brazil because he is a suspect in a homicide in the state of Minas Gerias.

Dias had been deported from the U.S. in 2004, but entered the country again nonetheless.

The arrest was made with the help of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who are holding Dias for Brazilian authorities.
