CHESTERFIELD — A Pennsylvania man traveling through the area was found to be an illegal alien Aug. 24, police said.
At 10:26 a.m., State Police pulled over a vehicle driving northbound on Interstate 87 in the Town of Chesterfield, said Troop B Public Information Officer Trooper Jennifer Fleishman.
The driver, Fabian N. Sanay Pozo, 39, of Exton, Penn., could not provide identification to verify his U.S. citizenship, Fleishman said.
He did not speak English, so his passenger, Clara Perez, 48, of New York City, translated for him, she said.
Perez is in the United States legally, Fleishman said.
Sanay Pozo is originally from Equador, she said.
State Police waited with Sanay Pozo until U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers came to take him into custody, Fleishman said.
He was charged with a federal felony, she said.
No further information was available.
