Man indicted for
illegal aliens
A federal grand jury in Toledo has indicted a Honduran man with three counts of transporting illegal aliens unlawfully in the United States.
According to court records, on Jan. 24, Border Patrol agents, while on patrol near a service plaza on the Ohio Turnpike in Sandusky County, pulled over a vehicle driven by Nestor Alfredo Figueoroa-Murillo and found he was transporting six people inside the vehicle who were illegally in the U.S. without authorization. Court documents indicate the agents were able to determine the six had been transported illegally into the country.

Sex offense
charges filed
Acting on information received last month from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and county SWAT team executed a search warrant Feb. 10 at a residence at 19535 W. Moline Martin Rd.
According to the sheriff’s office, several electronic devices were seized and Matthew Shiffert, 29, a resistered sex offender, was taken into custody.
He’s been charged with one count of failure to register and four counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.
