On Tuesday morning, an illegal alien who was accused of hacking two men to death in a Honduran liquor store in 1993 was arrested in North Carolina.
Francisco Escobar-Orellana, an illegal alien from Honduras, was arrested as part of the ongoing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations.
In July 2011, Escobar was arrested for driving under the influence. He was eventually released for unclear reasons, as ICE stated that the Honduran government had filed an arrest warrant for him in 2005.
According to an ICE press release:
“Mr. Escobar is wanted in Honduras pursuant to a May 2005 arrest warrant for allegedly hacking two men to death with a machete at a liquor store in 1993. Mr. Escobar subsequently unlawfully entered the United States at an unknown time/place.”
Escobar, who is being held in the Wake County detention center, now has an ICE detainer against him and will be extradited back to Honduras, where he will face charges for the 1993 murders.
Sean Gallagher, ICE’s Atlanta field office director, said in a statement:
“ICE is focused on identifying, arresting and removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws. ICE Fugitive Operations Teams conduct targeted enforcement operations toward these identified threats to public safety. North Carolina residents are safer today thanks to the professionalism and hard work of these dedicated officers.”
