Illegal Migrants Arrested for Allegedly Kidnapping Teen from Indiana

Early Monday morning, five individuals who were reportedly undocumented migrants were apprehended in Missouri after allegedly abducting a teenage girl from Indiana.

On June 17, at approximately 2 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol received a report about a 14-year-old girl who had gone missing from Cass County, Indiana.

According to the court records, the girl’s father witnessed his daughter getting into a black Dodge Durango with an unclear license plate and contacted the Logansport Police Department.

According to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, the suspects’ Texas-registered car was heading westbound on U.S. 36 near Hannibal, Missouri, when the girl’s cell phone pinged. The Sheriff’s Office promptly notified Missouri state troopers.

Shortly after that, a trooper spotted an SUV that matched the description and initiated a traffic stop. The trooper found a girl in the rear of the SUV, and she was identified as the missing adolescent.

According to the court records, the child was intended to be a runaway.

Online arrest reports indicate that four of the males are foreign-born. However, due to law enforcement efforts in two separate states, they were apprehended.

The five men were detained and taken to the Macon County Jail. They are Arturo Eustaquio, a 41-year-old from Mexico; Marlon Aguilar, a 44-year-old from Honduras; Daniel Ruiz Lopez, a 19-year-old from Mexico; Noe Guzman Hernandez, a 24-year-old from Mexico; and Carlos Funez, a 56-year-old from Honduras.

The perpetrators have been verified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be in the country illegally, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The youngster and her family reportedly made it home safely.

Parents can best protect their children from online predators by monitoring their social media use and setting limits.

Many Americans are worried about crimes perpetrated by illegal immigrants as the November presidential election draws near.

On Tuesday, President Joe Biden unveiled an executive order that would establish a massive amnesty program for illegal immigrants, similar in scope to Obama’s DACA program.
