ALBION, N.Y. (WIVB) – State Police say an undocumented immigrant attempted to avoid discovery at a road checkpoint by pulling in a driveway, but the ruse didn’t work.
Troopers on Rt. 31 in Albion last Friday saw the vehicle with out-of-state plates pull into the driveway, and say the driver got out of the car, walked around it, and then got back into the driver’s seat.
The vehicle stayed parked in the driveway, and a short time later, the homeowner called police to report a suspicious vehicle.
Troopers went to the home and say the driver, 27-year-old Cesar Diaz, did not have a driver’s license or other identification. With the help of Border Patrol, authorities determined Diaz is in the United States illegally and is a citizen of Honduras.
Diaz is being held by Border Patrol.
