Jamaican murder suspect captured in Federal Way

Mirror staff reports:

A nationwide immigration sting resulted in the arrest of a Jamaican murder suspect in Federal Way.

The suspect, Carlington David Richards, 34, was among 3,168 suspects arrested in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) roundup in March. According to an April 2 announcement, Richards was captured through an INTERPOL lead and was placed in ICE custody. The report says Richards is "a recent border entrant and an international fugitive from justice, wanted in Jamaica for murder."

The six-day national "Cross Check" operation led to the arrest of convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators. This is the third Cross Check operation by the agency.

Arrests were made in all 50 states, along with Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories, according to ICE. Among those arrested, 1,477 had felony convictions including murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, drug trafficking, child abuse and sexual crimes against minors.
