Authorities say they have arrested an illegal alien for internet crimes against child and identify theft.

Victor Velazquez was arrested on two counts of Possession of Sexual Abuse Images/Videos of Children under the age of 13.  “As I have repeatedly said: every time one of these videos or images is viewed, the child is re-victimized,” added Attorney General Jeff Landry. “So I will continue working with our law enforcement partners to do all that we can to protect the innocence of our children and root out illegal immigration.”

During the investigation into Velazquez – agents from the state’s Attorney Generals Office located a social security card with his name but someone else’s number, prompting the identity theft charge.

Valazquez was arrested and booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail.  An ICE detainer has been placed on Velazquez, holding him for immigration enforcement review.
