U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is confirming the arrests of two men at a Bowling Green apartment complex Wednesday morning.
Khaalid Walls, spokesman for ICE said Thursday in an email that "following a targeted enforcement action, special agents with ICE's Homeland Security Investigations arrested two men in Bowling Green. The first individual is an aggravated felon, who was previously removed (from the United States). He is facing federal felony charges for illegal re-entry after deportation. The second individual was arrested for administrative immigration violations. Both men will be held in ICE custody pending the outcome of their cases."
The incident was reported to BG police around 8:50 a.m. at the Green Meadows apartment complex, 214 Napoleon Road, when a caller told police they saw two men being placed into handcuffs and put into a vehicle by two other men. The arresting men said they were with Homeland Security, according to Chief Brad Conner, which was later confirmed.

BLOOMDALE - Two former Elmwood High School students charged in a scam operation that spanned two counties may have gotten away with more than $1,000 from their victims.
The two boys, ages 17 and 14, who were formerly a junior and freshman at Elmwood, were charged Wednesday with theft after the scam - soliciting money for non-existent cancer patients - came to light earlier this year.
"We don't have firm numbers," said Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson late Thursday morning of how much the boys allegedly took. "We may never know, since most of it was collected in cash. We believe it was in excess of $1,000."
The boys reportedly operated in Findlay, as well as in the southeast corner of Wood County, including the Bloomdale and Fostoria areas.

Wood County Hospital has withdrawn its request to rezone its 37.3 acre property on West Wooster Street and Conneaut Avenue.
As a result, the public hearing on the rezoning scheduled for Monday night by Bowling Green City Council has been canceled.
The withdrawal and cancelation were announced in an email from the clerk of city council sent just after 8 p.m. Thursday.
The hospital was seeking rezoning from S-3, planned institutional to I-1, institutional. Hospital officials said the change would remove months from the planning process and allow the hospital to better respond to changing needs.
BG’s Planning Commission sent a negative recommendation to council following its public hearing Feb. 5.
