Attempted traffic strop on turnpike led to arrest
(Toledo, Ohio - October 2, 2010)

An illegal Mexican immigrant has been found guilty of felony transport of another illegal alien.

Antonio Cervantes-Peralta, 21, of Puebla, Mexico, was found guilty by a jury in U.S. District Court in Toledo. He is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service until his Feb. 7 sentencing.

Cervantes-Peralta was charged for an April 25 incident that began when he failed to stop for a Border Patrol agent attempting a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike.

The suspect was behind the wheel of a van, traveling west on the Ohio Turnpike near the Elmore exit, when a Border Patrol agent noticed "road-rage characteristics" in a construction zone. The agent found several individuals listed as the owner of the vehicle during a check of the Arizona license plate.
