Eight purported Cape Verde gang members were among those arrested in a sweep by federal immigration officials

15:57 |

Eight purported Cape Verde gang members were among those arrested in a sweep by federal immigration officials and local authorities, including one man who tried to escape through a window, a Plymouth County sheriff official said on Wednesday.

Authorities arrested 78 of a possible 80 targets in a sweep of what U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials deemed “criminal aliens,” said John Birtwell, a spokesman for the Plymouth County sheriff.

Federal officials had initially cited 53 arrests, but Birtwell said those included illegal immigrants. The remaining 25, he said, were either arrested on outstanding warrants or had their immigration status put in jeopardy by a past conviction.

Birtwell said authorities arrested 18 in Brockton, including one man who tried to flee through a window only to be met by a K-9 officer.

“The dog convinced him otherwise,” Birtwell said.

Of the 78 arrested, 44 were detained at the Plymouth County facility, the primary ICE detention center in the Northeast, Birtwell said.

All of those arrested are being held pending immigration removal proceedings, federal officials said on Tuesday.

Plymouth County sheriffs and Brockton police both assisted in the sweep.
