An illegal alien was arrested for breaking into a private residence in a town in upstate New York, authorities announced this week.

The incident unfolded just after 8 p.m. on March 22 in Union, located in Broome County near Binghamton.

The Broome County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) was alerted about suspicious activity at an apartment building in town.

“The investigation revealed that Miguel A. Martinez, age 31, had broken into a second-floor apartment through a bedroom window. The noises alerted a downstairs neighbor, who called 911,” BCSO explained a press release this week.

BCSO patrols, with the help of New York State Police, tracked Martinez down nearby and arrested him.

Martinez was charged with second-degree burglary, which is a Class C Felony in New York.

He was being held at Broome County Correctional Facility this week, according to BCSO, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been notified about the arrest.

Local media has described Martinez as an “‘undocumented’ asylum seeker, who crossed the southern border” from his home country of Mexico.

An investigation and legal proceedings are ongoing.
