Illegal immigrants detained in Washington Township



Washington Township Police took a pair of illegal immigrants into custody after a routine traffic stop just after noon Friday in front of Indian Lake High School on State Route 235 at State Route 274.

Jesus Regaldo-Silva, 22, of Victoria de Durango, Mexico, was cited for operating a motor vehicle with no operator’s license. He and a passenger, Rafael Regaldo-Aguirre of Santiago Papasquiaro Durango, Mexico, are being held in the county for immigration officials.

Sheriff’s deputies and the Waynesfield Police Department K-9 Unit assisted township officers at the scene. The vehicle was impounded.

Driver, passenger lodged after traffic stop

Township officers lodged a driver and her passenger late Friday evening after a routine traffic stop turned violent.

Kimberly L. Miller, 44, of 3294 County Road 105, Belle Center, was stopped on State Route 366 near the spillway shortly after 11 p.m. Friday for failing to dim her bright headlights for the oncoming officer, who determined she was inebriated and charged her with OVI and failure to reinstate after two prior incidents.

When a tow truck arrived to impound the vehicle, her passenger, Jack Miller Jr., 45, of the same address and also under the influence of alcohol, locked all the car doors and refused to exit the vehicle. As one officer went to retrieve a device to enter the car, Mr. Miller jumped out and assaulted another officer.

He was charged with persistent disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public intoxication.

Russells Point Police assisted at the scene.
