LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) — Authorities say an illegal alien affiliated with an international criminal gang was found and arrested in Lancaster.

On September 30, Lancaster police called for U.S. Border Patrol Agents to help them after locating 30-year-old Savier Ayala.

Ayala, who was convicted of DWI in North Carolina six years ago, was removed from the country after his conviction. While he was living there, officials say he joined Mara Salvatrucha, a gang also known as MS-13.

Authorities who interviewed him say he illegally came back to the United States through Arizona in 2014. They did not specify where he is originally from.

Pending his removal from the country, Ayala is being held without bond. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
