ICE Removes Ecuadorian National Wanted for Quadruple Murder

Ecuadorian national wanted on multiple murder charges in his home country was removed from Alexandria, LA.
ALEXANDRIA, La. (ICE) – An Ecuadorian national wanted on multiple murder charges in his home country was removed from the United States Friday. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), removed him from Alexandria, Louisiana.

Agustin Ramiro Ocampo-Tobar, 33, is charged with murdering four people in October 2011 in Santo Domingo, Ecuador.

Trey Lund, field office director for ERO New Orleans, says, "ICE will continue to focus its enforcement operations on identifying, arresting and removing dangerous criminals who pose the greatest risk to our communities."

ERO and a U.S. Marshall Fugitive Task Force took Ocampo-Tobar into custody in New York Oct. 7.

ERO officers removed Ocampo-Tobar via an ICE Air Operations charter flight Friday from Alexandria to Guayaquil, Ecuador. From there, ICE officers transferred him into Ecuadorian law enforcement custody.
