ESCONDIDO A 22-year-old burglary suspect who fled the crime scene just might have gotten away if only he hadnt been wearing a GPS ankle bracelet tracking his every move.
The burglary was reported about 4:20 p.m. Thursday, when a girl called 911 saying someone was breaking into her apartment.
Neighbors were able to chase the man away and told arriving police officers that they recognized him as their neighbor, Jimmy Alexander Magadiaga, said Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter.
Officers soon discovered that their suspect was outfitted with a GPS ankle bracelet because of a pending deportation hearing. They quickly partnered with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to begin monitoring his movements.
With an officer now matching Magadiaga turn for turn, police caught up with him two hours later and arrested him without incident.
Magadiaga was booked into the Vista jail on suspicion of burglary and for an outstanding domestic violence warrant.
Investigators suspect he is responsible for other burglaries in the area and are asking potential victims to come forward. Anyone with information can call police at (760) 839-4722 or leave an anonymous tip at (760) 839-4973 or escondido.org/police.
“pending deportation hearing.”
In my dreams, Obama gives stimulus money to speed up the depoortation process.
Thanks to the scumbag lawyers and judges these pukes get to stay here for months and years waiting for their “deportation hearings”
When it’s determined they are illegal, why can’t we just ship them out?
This country is in big trouble and the worthless idiots in DC are not interested in solving the problem. THEY WANT THE VOTES AND ARE IGNORING THE CRISIS ON PURPOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can we get a new gps bracelet with a ‘shock colar’ device for these ‘undocumented democrats’.
just trying to find a better life
Until the border is closed and secure, it is better to keep him in prison in the U.S.
Even after serving there time, it may be better to keep them in the U.S. on the parole system than sending back to their home country.
The poor man. Looking for work, no doubt.
