ICE apprehends fugitive alien wanted for murder in Honduras

WASHINGTON – On Thursday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers apprehended a known gang-member wanted by Interpol for murder in his home country.

Cesar Isaac Erazo Euceda, 29, is a citizen and national of Honduras, where he is the leader of a local gang known as “Flaco’s Gang.”

Erazo had been illegally residing in the U.S., having entered on an unknown date at an unknown location without being paroled or admitted. In February, the Republic of Honduras obtained a warrant for Erazo charging him with one count of homicide. Interpol subsequently issued a Red Notice on behalf of Honduran law enforcement authorities for Erazo.

In March, ERO officers in Miami provided counterparts in Washington with information possibly pertaining to Erazo, and on April 18, ERO officers in Washington arrested Erazo at his place of employment in Hyattsville, Md.

“A fugitive alien hoping to skirt the justice system, whether here or overseas, cannot call this country home,” said ERO Washington Field Office Director Russ Hott. “I especially thank these ICE officers and our Honduran partners for the continued and collective commitment to information sharing which facilitated this arrest.”

Erazo was issued a notice to appear in immigration court and will be detained in ICE custody pending immigration court proceedings.

ICE is focused on removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges.
