Immigration to deport nabbed American pedophile
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) is already preparing the deportation of an American pedophile arrested in Pampanga during the weekend.
Ronald Omar Pelletier, 70, was arrested Saturday at his home along Paulette Street, Josefa Subdivision, Brgy. Malabanias, Angeles City. He was arrested by members of the Fugitive Search Unit.
BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said Pelletier has been wanted by federal authorities in Florida for violating the conditions of his parole.
“He will be deported for being an undesirable and undocumented alien,” said Morente, who added that the American’s passport was already cancelled by the US State Department.
He added that the summary deportation order will be issued by the Board of Commissioners this week.
Immigration intelligence officer Bobby Raquepo, BI-FSU acting chief, disclosed that Pelletier last arrived in the country on May 20 this year.
Raquepo said Pelletier was sentenced by the Florida court to 18 months imprisonment and five years of supervised release following his conviction for possession of child pornography on Sept. 21 last year. He was also fined US$10,000. JE
