A Honduran man arrested by Wall Police last month during a routine traffic stop, has been deported to face drug trafficking charges in his home country, authorities said.
Hugo Eraz-Argueta, 30, was arrested during a traffic stop on Route 138 on Aug. 13. He is wanted in Honduras on for trafficking and was deported on Sept. 28 to face charges there, according to a release from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
He was escorted by ICE officers and turned over to Honduran law enforcement authorities upon arrival in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
“Individuals like Erazo-Argueta who try to hide in the United States to avoid criminal charges in their home country are a high priority for ICE,” said John Tsoukaris, field office director for ERO Newark. "Every day ICE is protecting public safety by removing international fugitives and convicted criminals from the U.S.”
