Illegal alien turned over to feds

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — GASPORT — A man found walking through the front yard of a home on the 8000 block of Mill Road about 4 a.m. Tuesday was handed over to the United States Border Patrol. 

While doing road patrol duty, a Niagara County Sheriff's deputy reportedly saw the man walking about 10 feet off of Mill Road in the front yard. The man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants and was carrying a gray bag. When the deputy asked the man what he was doing, the man looked nervous and did not answer. Asked where he was going, the man said, in broken English, that he was going to work. Asked where he was coming from, he said, "Mexico."

A search of the man's bag showed it contained food and drinks, according to the deputy.

In lieu of identification, which the man said he did not have, the man wrote his name and date of birth on a piece of paper. Asked if he was in the country legally, the man said "no," according to the deputy. The man was unable to provide the location where he was staying, except by pointing in a westward direction, the deputy added.

The deputy detained the man and called Border Patrol. A responding agent questioned the man in Spanish and transported him to the Border Patrol station for further investigation, according to the deputy.
