Seven illegal immigrants were arrested early Sunday morning in two separate traffic stops.
It marked the second time this month local police aided in catching illegalimmigrants.
On March 2, a Perkins police officer pulled over a van and found 12 illegal immigrants from Mexico.
All of the immigrants in that arrest were living in Ft. Wayne, Ind., and have since been deported to Mexico, according to an immigration spokesman.
Police discovered five illegal immigrants inside the van. They took Fidel Morales-Sunun, 47, first block Grand Ave., Norwalk; Julio Hernandez, 42, first block Grand Avenue, Norwalk; Gamaliel Morales-Sunun, 29, 5100 block U.S. 250, Norwalk; Roman Velazquez-Gonzalez, 28, 5100 block U.S. 250, and Eloy Rodriguez, 38, first block Grand Ave., Norwalk, to the Erie County jail, where they were held for ICE officials, the report stated.
