Mexican Illegal Alien Sentenced On Gun And Cocaine Charges
OCT 9 -- (Louisville, KY) - Narciscon Hernandez-Reyes a/k/a Andres Lopez-Mayo, of Louisville, Kentucky, was sentenced to 1 year and 3 months imprisonment in United States District Court, Louisville, Kentucky, on charges of illegal re-entry after deportation, alien in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine, U.S. Attorney David L. Huber of the Western District of Kentucky announced today. Charles R. Simpson, III, United States District Judge, also sentenced Hernandez-Reyes to 3 years supervised release following incarceration. There is no parole in the federal judicial system.
Hernandez-Reyes, a citizen of Mexico, admitted that on March 13, 2008, he was present at his residence located at 1538 Taylor Avenue, Louisville, Kentucky, when U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and ICE agents executed a federal search warrant. During the search of the residence, a gun and 1.2 grams of powder cocaine were found in Hernandez-Reyes’s room. A records check revealed that Hernandez-Reyes has a felony conviction for Theft of Property and Breaking or Entering out of Arkansas in 2002. Hernandez-Reyes was arrested and then taken into federal custody for the booking process.
Upon being booked into jail, a check of Hernandez-Reyes’s fingerprints indicated that he was a citizen of Mexico who had previously been removed from the United States on August 19, 2003, through the port of entry at Hidalgo, Texas. When federal agents interviewed Hernandez-Reyes he admitted that he had been deported in 2003 and further claimed that he had re-entered the United States illegally sometime in 2006 near the port of entry at Naco, Arizona. A review of immigration records revealed that Hernandez-Reyes had not received permission to re-enter the United States from the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security since he was deported in 2003.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel P. Kinnicutt, and it was investigated by the DEA and the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
