Lakehurst police arrested a Red Bank man on charges that he is an undocumented alien, today’s Asbury Park Press reports.


The arrest of Alfredo Hernandez-Perez, 18, followed a minor motor vehicle collision on Saturday afternoon, the newspaper says.

During an investigation, Officer Matthew Kline found Hernandez-Perez in possession of multiple summonses issued by Red Bank Municipal Court. Initially, Hernandez-Perez provided Kline with a false name, Heinzman said, but the summonses and a fraudulent Social Security card provided police with the driver’s correct name.

Hernandez-Perez was taken to the Ocean County Jail and charged with possessing a fraudulent document and hindering apprehension. He was issued motor vehicle summonses on charges of careless driving and operating a motor vehicle without a license.

The article says Hernandez-Perez is “being held on a no-bail detainer issued by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Sgt. Ronald Heinzman said.” He’s also facing $1,000 bail in connection with the motor vehicle charges.
