Alleged illegal jailed after stop [3rd item]

ASHLAND — Borough police took an alleged illegal alien, Javier Cruz-Perez, Mexico, into custody after a traffic stop Tuesday, police said Saturday.

Police stopped Cruz-Perez, who was driving with an illegal license plate near Fourth and Centre streets, at 4:55 p.m.

Cruz-Perez could not provide any form of identification and was transported to the state police’s Frackville station, where a live scan was conducted by Cpl. Leo Luciani, police said.

State police determined Cruz-Perez was an illegal alien, then transported him to Schuylkill County Prison on an immigration detainer from ICE. Additional criminal charges are pending as a result of the traffic stop, police said.
