An El Salvadoran national, Alexander Jovel-Guillen, 23, aka “El Crimen,” wanted in his native country for aggravated murder, was repatriated Wednesday, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), and was transferred to the custody of El Salvadoran authorities.
Alexander Jovel-Guillen, 23, aka “El Crimen,” came into ICE custody Oct. 26, 2016, after apprehension by the U.S. Border Patrol. At that time, he was detained for illegal entry and held for removal from the United States.
On Oct. 30, 2017, El Salvadoran authorities notified ERO that Jovel-Guillen was subject to an outstanding arrest warrant for aggravated murder.
Jovel-Guillen has previously been repatriated to El Salvador and has convictions in the United States for possession of marijuana, tampering with a vehicle, unauthorized use of a vehicle, and hit and run.
