ORANGE CITY, IOWA -- A Boyden, Iowa, man was sentenced Monday on a charge of identity theft, according to Sioux County Attorney Coleman J. McAllister.

Jose Amado Garrido, 48, was sentenced to five years in prison after the Sioux County Sheriff's Department received a text message saying he was working at Boyden's Sparboe Food Corp. using another man's personal identification number.

Garrido, a native of Mexico and not authorized to be employed in the United States, had his prison term suspended and was placed on two years' probation.

However, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed a detainer on Garrido and will begin deportation proceedings against him.

Garrido was previously deported in 2003 after being arrested and convicted in Sioux County District Court on a forgery offense, McAllister said in a news release.
