A man in the U.S. illegally who was wanted on murder charges back in his native El Salvador was captured by local Louisiana police and was handed over to federal immigration authorities.

El Salvadorian native, Juan Sanchez-Roldan, 36, was pulled over by a St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, deputy while driving in a white Ford F-350.

After the deputy had searched Sanchez-Roldan in the National Crime Identification Center, he learned that the immigrant was wanted in El Salvador on murder charges.

“A man from El Salvador, who openly admitted to being in the United States illegally for over ten years, was detained,” Daniel Seuzeneau, the St. Tammany Sheriff’s Captain, revealed in a statement. “A St. Tammany Parish deputy discovered he had an outstanding warrant for homicide with the El Salvador authorities.”

Officials apprehended Sanchez-Roldan and kept him in custody until he was handed over to federal immigration agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), WBRZ reported.

Although the details of the murder that the man is involved in are scarce, St. Tammany Parish officials said the illegal was living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and was working in construction.

St. Tammany Parish is one of the most conservative areas in the state of Louisiana and is well-known for its law enforcement and immigration effectiveness when it comes to delivering illegal immigrants over to federal authorities.
