Arrests of Hispanics increase number reported to Immigration Officials

web posted December 22, 2007
MERRIWETHER – Sheriff’s Deputies called to check out two suspicious vehicles in Mt. Vintage ended up arresting two Hispanic males Thursday night. Once again Federal Officials with the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement are being notified. When a deputy asked one of the two drivers for his drivers license, Carmona Altamirano Filemon, 32, gave the deputy three Mexican identification cards, one containing his picture but a different name.

Upon further investigation it was found that Mr. Filemon also has paycheck stubs that contained yet another name. He was arrested for no drivers’ license. Due to the multiple names presented by Mr. Filemon reports state warrants for forgery will also be sought and officials with ICE were being contacted. His Ford F150 pickup truck was towed from the scene.

The second man, Rena Chonteco Cruz, 32, presented deputies with a South Carolina ID card that came back to him. However, Cruz was arrested for driving without a license and was transported along with Filemon to the Edgefield County Detention Center for booking.

The arrests come on the heels of four others arrested on Sunday when nine Hispanic men were caught firing a fully automatic AK-47 and almost a dozen other guns at the Beaver Dam Shooting Range. Immigration officials were contacted for possible deportation of at least one the four arrested.
