Law enforcement officials say they’ve arrested a man on the Island this week who is wanted for homicide in Brazil.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, commonly known as ICE, arrested 31-year-old Hiago Ornela Da Silva, of Brazil, in Edgartown Thursday with the help of Edgartown police.

According to ICE, the man entered the U.S. without documentation as a minor in 2007, and was apprehended by border patrol officers at the time. Mr. Ornela Da Silva left the country a couple years later and came back to the U.S. on an unknown date, ICE said in a statement.

“The arrest of this Brazilian noncitizen demonstrates our commitment to prioritizing enforcement and removal efforts against unlawfully present noncitizens who are wanted for crimes in their home countries,” said enforcement and removal operations Boston field office director Todd Lyons.

Edgartown police chief Bruce McNamee said his department doesn’t normally get involved in the enforcement of federal immigration law, but assisted ICE because Mr. Ornela Da Silva was wanted for murder.

“In matters of simple immigration, we don’t get involved in that,” the chief said.

Chief McNamee said it appeared the suspect was residing at an Edgartown address, but it wasn’t clear for how long. The Edgartown department had no local criminal charges and the chief deferred further queries to ICE.
