Cops: Mexican murder suspect hid in PTC

A former Peachtree City resident wanted for murder in his homeland was turned over to Mexican law enforcement officers Thursday, according to officials with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Alfredo Montalvo-Coreno, 32, had been jailed since Jan. 16 when he was arrested by the Tyrone Police Department for driving without a license and speeding.

The outstanding murder warrant was discovered after officers at the Fayette County Jail submitted Montalvo-Coreno’s fingerprints using the Secure Communities program. The Interpol warrant accuses Montalvo-Coreno of committing a homicide in the Mexican state of Guanajuato in 2002.

Montalvo-Coreno was taken into custody by federal officials June 7 and on Thursday he was flown to Texas and turned over to officials from the Mexican Office of the General Attorney at the Laredo, Texas port of entry, officials said.

The removal was handled by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations.

According to the booking report for his January arrest, Montalvo was living at the Gables Court apartment complex in Peachtree City.

Since Oct. 1, 2008, the ICE ERO initiative has removed more than 455 foreign fugitives from the United States who were being sought in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder. ICE ERO works with ICE's Office of International Affairs, foreign consular offices in the United States, and Interpol to identify foreign fugitives illegally present in the country.

“ICE works closely with our international law enforcement partners to identify, locate and deport aliens who are wanted in their home countries for allegedly committing heinous crimes,” said Felicia Skinner, field office director of ICE ERO Atlanta. “We will not allow criminal aliens to use the United States as a safe haven from their crimes.”

You would think if he was wanted for murder and did not have a driver's license he would have made sure that he did not get pulled over for speeding... Obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

busy bee, that was MLK holiday. His alarm clock didn't go off and he didn't want to miss the parade in the ATL.

the chance to work in an attorney's office if he got caught without a license--and he would keep getting extentions on how long he could remain here until he was old enough to qualify for social security. Guess he didn't stop to think that there may some police and others in the legal profession who check and follow through--or maybe Obama just did not hear about his situation in time to spring him and have another valuable sound bite.

there have experience with helping illegals.

I'm sure Uncle Omar and Auntie Zeituni can find someone to pay the bills for their fellow illegals. That's what so great about this country, right? :(

I just couldn't help it. They do send their regards, though, if that makes you feel any better.
