Alfonso Pasillas Carrillo

— Police have charged a Clayton man with swindling Latinos out of more than $50,000, promising to obtain driver's licenses and immigration papers for them before skipping out with their money.

Alfonso Pasillas Carrillo, 24, was charged with 18 counts of obtaining property by false pretense and was being held in the Johnston County jail under a $362,000 bond.

Eighteen people told police that Carrillo charged them $2,500 to $5,000 for the papers between February and September but never delivered.

Police also charged Carrillo in October with impersonating a law enforcement officer.

    They should have arrested all 18 as they blew the whistle. It takes a lot of nerve to swindle your own people but it takes more nerve to tell the police you got robbed while trying to skirt the system and get DL's and papers illegally. Send all 19 back yesterday

    Why would our law enforcement use resources to help illegals?

    They are not American citizens!

    You posters are all wrong, the illegals just want to come to better their life. Yep by taking advantage of tgeir fellow countrymen jsut like they do in tyheir home country. We need to deport ALL of them. The fact that more have been deported while Obama has been in office is irrevelant, there are STILL millions in teh USA that need to be and shou;d be DEPORTED; that is ALL persons residing here thatt did NOT cross the border with proper papers, regardless of their country of origin!

    "How about rounding up the Eighteen people that were by-passing the Law ?????"

    Let's not get carried away stringbean. Haven't you noticed yet that's not how our country works anymore. It seems that the law isn't as straightforward as it used to be.
