ICE assists in violent offender arrest in Sun Valley

RENO, Nev. – Officers with U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) assisted the U.S. Marshal Service (USMS) lead fugitive task force and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in yesterday’s arrest of Rodolfo Navarro-Salgado. After a brief stand-off with law enforcement officers at Navarro-Salgado’s residence in Sun Valley he surrendered and was taken into custody without incident. Navarro-Salgado, an alleged gang member with a violent criminal history, was wanted by the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Division of Parole and Probation, for parole violations. ERO Reno officers placed an immigration detainer for Navarro-Salgado with Washoe County Jail.

“This arrest reflects ICE’s ongoing commitment to partner with local, state and federal law enforcement to protect our communities from public safety threats,” said ICE Deputy Field Office Director Dana Fishburn, ICE ERO, Las Vegas, Nevada. “It’s because of the professionalism of ICE law enforcement officers working operations aimed at arresting criminal aliens, that real progress is being made in protecting our communities from the threat posed by criminal aliens.”

District of Nevada U.S. Marshal Gary Schofield stated, “This is yet another example of how our joint agency efforts are apprehending violent fugitives who think they can hide in the Washoe County community.”

Nevada USMS Fugitive Task Force brings together the resources and expertise of state, local, and federal agencies in a coordinated effort to arrest dangerous and violent fugitives. The USMS Fugitive Task Force is comprised of Deputy U.S. Marshals, ICE ERO, Investigators from the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office, Division of Investigations, Nevada Division of Parole and Probation, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Investigators of the Nevada Department of Corrections, Office of the Inspector General (NDOC IG) and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
