RURAL COUNTY PATROLS LEAD TO ARREST OF MAN FOR FEDERAL IMMIGRATION VIOLATION – HOLD ISSUED BY FEDERAL I.C.E.
Arrested person information:
Carlos Lozano-Hernandez – age 42
On June 13, 2019, at approximately 8:50 AM, a Callaway County Sheriff’s Office deputy was proactively patrolling County Road 269 in the Stephens area. During the patrol, the deputy conducted a traffic stop regarding a traffic violation. The deputy identified the driver as Carlos Lozano-Hernandez – age 42.
During the traffic stop investigation, the deputy detected inconsistencies regarding Hernandez’ residency status. Hernandez was arrested for operating a motor vehicle without a driver’s license and transported to the Callaway County Jail.
Subsequently, contact was made with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) agency. It was confirmed that Hernandez was not compliant with federal immigration laws. I.C.E. subsequently placed a federal hold on Hernandez and he will be transferred to federal custody in the near future. Hernandez is being held without bond in the Callaway County Jail.
The Callaway County Sheriff’s Office remains committed to enhancing public safety throughout the county, which commitments are enhanced through positive working relationships with other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies such as the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
