Honduran charged with transporting illegal aliens

TOLEDO – A federal grand jury has returned a three-count indictment charging Nestor Alfredo Figueroa-Murillo, 29, of Honduras, with three counts of transporting illegal aliens unlawfully in the United States.

According to court documents, on Jan. 24, border patrol agents performing patrol duties near a Service Plaza on the Ohio Turnpike in Sandusky County pulled over a vehicle driven by Figueroa-Murillo and discovered that he was transporting six other people inside the vehicle who were illegally inside the United States without authorization.

Court documents state that agents then began an investigation into the matter and determined that the six people found inside the vehicle had been illegally transported into the United States.

This investigation was conducted by the United States Border Patrol and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Robert Melching and Frank Spryszak.
