Livingston County Sheriff’s Office turned over Manual Galindo-Lopez, age 35, to Border Patrol after stopping his vehicle for a traffic violation. The sheriff’s office had requested Border Patrol assistance during the traffic stop.

A Border Patrol agent interviewed Galindo-Lopez, a citizen of Mexico. Galindo-Lopez was found in possession of a counterfeit Permanent Resident Alien Card, and a counterfeit Social Security card.  The suspect had a record of a prior immigration violation and a DUI conviction.

Galindo-Lopez was determined by Border Patrol to be illegally present in the U.S., and was placed under arrest and transported to the Rochester Border Patrol Station for further processing.  

Rochester Station Patrol-Agent-In-Charge Michael Werthman said, “The U.S. Border Patrol assists law enforcement partners every day in securing our border, which includes insuring the safety of residents and visitors to our area. The arrest of this individual highlights the cooperation between law enforcement agencies in bringing criminals to justice.  I commend our agents for their hard work and commitment to service.”

Galindo-Lopez will be held without bond pending an appearance before a federal magistrate.
