A woman living in Hendersonville was arrested Tuesday and processed through the Henderson County Sheriff's Office's criminal illegal alien program.

Claudia Lizet Vazquez-Hernandez was arrested Tuesday for resisting officers, Capt. Jerry Rice said in a news release.

While being booked, Vazquez-Hernandez gave deputies multiple counterfeit identification documents including Social Security cards, Department of Treasury and Internal Revenue Service Individual Taxpayer identification number cards, permanent resident alien cards, N.C. Department of Health and Human Services Medicaid identification card and North Carolina electronic benefit transfer card, Rice said in the release.

“An inquiry through the 287g program showed that Vazquez-Hernandez had been previously removed from the United States for convictions of felonies involving possession and purchase for sale of cocaine, transportation or sale of narcotics and use of a compartment for controlled substances,” Rice said in the release. “At this discovery, sheriff's deputies reported their findings to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Criminal Apprehension Program Unit for their review and possible prosecution as a re-entry aggravated felon.”

Vazquez-Henderson was arrested while deputies were attempting to serve a warrant for child support on Carlos Ramirez Ventura at 333 Clairmont Drive in Hendersonville.

“During the warrant service attempt, deputies encountered Vazquez-Hernandez, who stated she did not know Ventura,” Rice said in the release. “Further investigation by the deputies revealed Vazquez-Hernandez did in fact know Ventura through a personal relationship and lived with him at the Clairmont location.”

Ventura was also arrested Tuesday for the child support warrant.

“A records check revealed that he was wanted in Horry County, S.C. for failure to appear in court for an aggravated assault,” Rice said in the release. “Ventura was released after determining South Carolina would not extradite him since he was located out of their state, and he posted bond on the child support warrant.”

Ventura also has prior convictions for driving with a suspended license and disorderly conduct, according to Rice.
