ICE Places Detainer on Suspect's Bond in Attempted Kidnappings

— A man charged in connection with three reports of attempted kidnappings will stay in jail, even if he is able to make his $1.25 million bond.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has put a detainer on Fredy Humberto Pacheco's bond, because it thinks he is in the United States illegally, authorities said.

Pacheco, 36, of 901 Chalk Level Road, faces two counts of attempted kidnapping and one count of resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer.

An 11-year-old girl reported she was the victim of two attempts – occurring in the past two weeks – near Landon and Hardee streets while she was going to school, police said.

In both attempts, a man driving a bright red car pulled up to the girl and told her to get in the vehicle with him, police said. The girl refused and ran away. She told police that the attempted abductor's car had a decorative plate on the front that read “Fear This.”

Investigators said another girl came forward describing a similar experience.

Investigators recovered a car Tuesday at a shopping center near Miami Boulevard and Holloway Street and identified it as the vehicle described in all three cases.

    Caan the news tell us more? Did the illegal in this case own the red car? Were did he get the money for the car? Who hires illegals? More crack downs on the employers might be a deterent to so many illegals. At what point will he be returned to the country from which he came?

    How about if you are convicted of a crime in the USA and you are also an illegal alien, you get the death penalty?? We have enough predators here already. Do we really need visitors preying upon our children too?

    Imagine that! An illegal alien attempting to break a law of our country?
    Actually I'm surprised ICE is doing anything about it. They'll probably be accused to profiling!

    First of all if my child was almost kidnapped they sure as he11 wouldnt be walking to school AGAIN by them selves. What kind of parents let there child do that? I would think to be a little cautious for a while.

    I can even imagine a culture that breeds people who would want to abduct children; but it happens, even here in the good old USA, and the truth is, they so often spend a few years in jail and then get out, to predate upon the young once again because they simply aren't attracted to those their own age, and they can't be rehabilitated from that.

    Thanking God the children are ok...Praying they stay that way.

    God bless.
