Former Mexican Police Officer Wanted for Murder Arrested in Denver

Breitbart — HOUSTON, Texas. A former Mexican police officer, who is wanted in his home country for aggravated homicide, was arrested in Denver on Tuesday. According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 41-year-old Jesus Gabriel Ibarra-Espinoza allegedly shot a man in 2000 while he was on an assignment providing security to a local party in Mocorito, Mexico. Ibarra-Espinoza was apparently “visibly intoxicated” at the time. After shooting a man with his AR-15 police rifle, the officer reportedly fled the scene and subsequently abandoned his weapons. ICE reported that Ibarra-Espinoza later entered the United States using a fake name. He was apprehended by U.S. authorities and deported once in 2000, but re-entered the country illegally through at California-based point of entry later that year. Authorities believe that Ibarra-Espinoza was living with family members including his wife up until his arrest in Denver. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) ultimately arrested the Mexican national. ERO’s field office director in Denver said in a statement, “Our ERO officers ensure that dangerous fugitives don’t use the United States as a safe haven from their crimes in other countries. They provide a valuable public-safety service by removing dangerous criminal aliens from our communities.” [Read More]
