News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Oct. 16, 2019: A Caribbean national previously ordered removed from the U.S. and twice released from local law enforcement custody with an active detainer has been ICED.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers recently arrested Guyanese national Grachowe Harrichand, 43.
Harrichand was arrested by the New York Police Department (NYPD) for the charges of sexual abuse in March and in July 2019, first for contact with victim less than 13; sexual contact with person less than 14 years-old and sexual contact without consent, forcible touching and acting in a manner to injure child less than 17 years-old.
ERO deportation officers arrested Harrichand in South Richmond Hill, New York. With a final order of removal in place from 2004, he is currently detained in ICE custody pending his removal to Guyana.
“Harrichand is a repeat offender when it comes to crimes against a child. Yet, he was released back into the community over and over,” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ERO New York.
