Roberto Garcia, 54, formerly of Danbury, was arrested on Dec. 9 by Wilton police after they learned the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement had an active warrant for his deportation. I.C.E. officers picked up Garcia from the Wilton Police Department's headquarters later that day.
I.C.E. learned of Garcia's whereabouts after he turned himself in to Wilton police Dec. 7 after learning that a warrant for second-degree breach of peace was issued after a fellow Orem's Diner employee complained of harassment. I.C.E. matched Garcia's fingerprints from Wilton police and alerted them of the warrant.
Wilton police are unsure of where Garcia is being deported. Police must alert the local court that he will not make his Dec. 17 court date for the breach of peace charge.
Also in the police blotter:
The manager of Verizon Wireless at 15 Danbury Road in Wilton reported a theft Dec. 9, saying that two males took two Blackberry Bold phones and left, police said. The manager said he was helping one man when a second entered and created a distraction, causing the manager to go into the back of the store, police said. While the manager was in the back, the men allegedly removed the phones from their boxes and left.
According to Wilton police, it took the manager about 10 minutes to realize the two $500 phones were missing. He was unable to identify the two men. A car was stopped in Ridgefield, but the men in the car were not the suspects.
