A 29-year-old man from Honduras with felony convictions was arrested as part of the operation, according to ICE.
He has multiple previous convictions of burglary, driving while intoxicated, and driving while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle.
The man was previously convicted of illegally reentering the U.S. and was incarcerated for two and a half years, according to ICE. He remains in ICE custody pending deportation.
Last year, 86 percent of the individuals arrested by ICE had pending charges or criminal convictions.
