Undocumented Workers Arrested In Putnam County

3/25/19 – 5:23 A.M.

Two recent traffic stops in Putnam County led to the arrests of undocumented immigrants. The Putnam County Sentinel reports all the people arrested were working at dairy farms in the northern part of the county.

On March 10 deputies pulled over a van near the intersection of State Routes 634 and 613. Deputies took Angela Cortes Cruz and Rafael Gomez into custody after talking to immigration enforcement officers. Two days later deputies made a traffic stop that led to the arrests of Daniel Perez-Gutierrez and Julio Escalante-De Leon.

The sheriff’s office says in both cases the drivers showed a Mexican voter identification card when asked for identification.
