SIERRA MADRE — A previously deported felon is in the custody of federal officials and awaiting deportation again following a routine traffic stop Thursday, authorities said.
An officer pulled over Antonio Camarillo, 35, of Los Angeles about 7:30 a.m. in the 00 block of South Baldwin Avenue, Sierra Madre police Sgt. Joe Ortiz said.
Camarillo initially provided a false name to the officer and was arrested, the sergeant said. Further investigation revealed Camarillo’s true identity as convicted felon who had previously been deported from the U.S., Ortiz said.
The conviction was related to a narcotics case, officials added.
Camarillo was turned over to officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
