California Teens Arrested for Posing as ICE Agents and Robbing Latino Community

 

Teens posed as ICE agents to target, rob Hispanics in western US police

Anaheim, CA — Two California teenagers have been arrested after allegedly impersonating U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and robbing members of the Latino community in various parts of the western United States. Laurentiu Baceanu and Vasile Alexandru, both 19, were apprehended last Thursday following a series of incidents in which they identified themselves as ICE agents, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

 

Officers responded to two connected robberies that occurred on June 20 between 5 and 6 p.m. In both cases, the suspects approached victims, presented themselves as ICE agents, demanded cash, and fled in a blue SUV.

 

The investigation, spearheaded by Anaheim police's Real Time Crime Center and Robbery-Major Assaults Detail, along with other units, linked Baceanu and Alexandru to recent similar robberies. Authorities located a blue Audi Q7 SUV in Fullerton nearly five hours after the incidents and arrested the suspects without incident.

 

Baceanu and Alexandru were booked at the Anaheim police detention facility on multiple robbery charges and other offenses. They are being held without bond.

 

The Anaheim Police Department, in cooperation with other law enforcement agencies, continues to investigate the extent of the pair's activities. Detectives suspect the teenagers committed similar robberies in Anaheim, Orange County, and other western U.S. locations. They believe additional victims may exist, as the suspects targeted Hispanics, spoke Spanish during the robberies, and used different vehicles, including a silver or gray Volkswagen Atlas SUV.

 

Authorities encourage anyone with information about the robberies to contact Detective John Carey at 714-765-1973, the Robbery-Major Assaults Detail at 714-765-1947, or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS or occrimestoppers.org. ICE has not yet commented on the case.

 

In related news, California U.S. congressional candidate Matt Gunderson emphasized the significance of the state's border issues in local races. He noted that incidents like these highlight the broader challenges and complexities associated with border security and immigration enforcement in California.

 

As the investigation into Baceanu and Alexandru's activities unfolds, the focus remains on ensuring justice for the victims and addressing the security concerns raised by such incidents.
