Illegal immigrant stopped
While on patrol Nov. 19, a St. Clair Shores police officer observed a 23-year-old man walking along Downing Street with a suitcase and a full white plastic grocery bag. When an officer approached the man, he appeared confused and said he did not speak English. The officer spoke to the man in Spanish and learned he entered the country illegally and worked at a local restaurant. He added that he would be returning to Mexico. U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement was contacted and took the man into custody.
