CaribWorldNews, MIAMI, FL, Thurs. July 16, 2009: A 35-year-old Bahamian national, listed as one of their nine `most wanted` fugitives by the Bahamas government, has been iced in Miami.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agents and Broward County Sheriff`s Office detectives this week nabbed David St. Remy, who is wanted for murder in the Bahamas, in Miami Shores.
ICE agents and BSO detectives also arrested Kervin Occean, 28. St. Remy and Occean were identified as illegal re-entries after deportation from the Bahamas. Both men were residing in the South Florida area.
ICE special agents recovered one AK-47 rifle, one M-16 rifle, a handgun, approximately 1/3 kilogram of cocaine, and approximately $2,000 in cash at a Miami Shores residence where St. Remy was living.
He, along with another Bahamian national arrested at the same time, face federal criminal charges for having illegally re-entered the United States after having been deported.
`I`m proud of the hard work and diligence of our special agents for tracking down and apprehending these criminals,` said Anthony Mangione, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Miami. `Apprehending dangerous foreign fugitives hiding in the United States is a top priority of ICE and now, not only has this illegal alien been removed from the streets of South Florida, but he will eventually be removed from the United States to face justice in the Bahamas.`
St. Remy and Occean face federal criminal charges of illegally re-entering the United States after having been deported and face up to 20 years in prison, if convicted. The ICE investigation confirmed that St. Remy, a convicted felon, was previously removed from the United States in May 2003 and Occean, also a convicted felon, was removed in July 2000.
