Fugitive arrested in Dover returned to Mexico

A Mexican national arrested in Dover in October has been returned to his home country to face charges of committing sexual acts against a minor, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced today.

Cecilio Cerro-Canjay, 32, had been a fugitive since October 2010 when Mexican authorities issued a warrant for his arrest, the agency said. The Procuraduria General De La Republica thought Cerro-Canjay was in the United States and requested ICE's assistance in apprehending him.

On Oct. 2, an ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations fugitive operations team arrested Cerro-Canjay in Dover. An immigration judge issued a final order of removal Oct. 15.

After departing Miami International Airport, ICE officials turned Cerro-Canjay over to the PGR in Mexico City today.
