On January 20, 2017 at 1:15 AM, agents from the US Border Patrol conducted a traffic stop in Malone, NY on a vehicle suspected to be involved in possible criminal activity.
Border Patrol agents identified a passenger in the vehicle as Manish Patel age 43. Patel possessed a fraudulent passport that had expired in December of 2016. Agents took Patel and the driver of the vehicle to the Border Patrol office where they were asked to be fingerprinted. Patel took the agents aside and advised he was not who his travel documents indicated. Patel then gave the agents his correct information. Agents completed a records check and it revealed Patel was wanted by Outagamie County for several felony charges including homicide of an unborn child.
Patel is being held in New York for possible federal immigration charges. That investigation is ongoing. The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department is working with the US Border Patrol and US Marshal’s Service.
