Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
September 22, 2011
It has been an interesting third full week in the month of September when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
Tuesday, September 20th, the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton, Oregon had seven criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 4.89% of the jail population the United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. One of the seven criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Umatilla County Jail was involved in some type of drug crime, 14.28% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).
Thursday, September 22nd, the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon had 81 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 14.16% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. Fourteen of the 81 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Washington County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 17.28% of the alien jail population (cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana).
This week we also have a couple of criminal aliens of the week.
On Friday, September 16th, the Oregonian newspaper reported two separate traffic stops by the Oregon State Police (OSP) led to the arrest of Hugo Monjaraz-Bibiano, in one vehicle, and Adrian Carranza-Martinez and Juan Armando Orozco-Lopez in another vehicle near Medford, Oregon.
After a search of the vehicle Hugo Monjaraz-Bibiano was driving, the OSP discovered 7 kilos (15.4 pounds) of cocaine. Further investigation by the OSP connected all three men to the large quantity of cocaine discovered in Monjaraz-Bibiano’s vehicle.
All three alleged drug mules are currently incarcerated at the Jackson County Jail in Medford where they have been charged with manufacture, possession, and delivery of cocaine.
At this time, only Adrian Carranza-Martinez and Juan Armando Orozco-Lopez have U.S. DHS–ICE holds, a strong indicator they may be in the country illegally.
According to an OSP officer, the cocaine was being delivered to Portland.
The Jackson County Jail is one of eight Oregon county jails that use the U.S. DHS-ICE Secure Communities program to help indentify its jail population.
Lars, the third full week of September and three different criminal alien reports for your KXL 101.1 radio listeners.
