Held On “ICE”

A man arrested this weekend on traffic charges is now being held for ICE – Immigration Customs Enforcement – agents. 24-year-old Emilio Tomas of 518 Fleming Street, Laurens was arrested by Laurens City Police just before midnight Saturday night and charged with Careless Driving and Driving without a Drivers License and without Insurance. The Department of Homeland Security has now issued a notice to the Sheriff’s Office to hold Mr. Tomas for pickup by ICE, apparently for deportation.
