Minot police officers took two men suspected to be illegal immigrants into custody early Monday morning while responding to an assault call at a southwest Minot hotel.
According to a press release, police arrested Theodore Kvasnicka, 26, around 2:15 a.m. and charged him with possession of an illegal weapon. Kvasnicka was treated for minor lacerations to his ear at Trinity Hospital before being transported to Ward County Jail
As a result of the call, police also discovered that Jesus Figueroa-Trujillo, 24, and Ramiro Hernandez, 36, were in the U.S. illegally, and officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol requested that they be taken into Minot police custody until federal agents could respond to Minot.
Police did not provide hometowns for any of the three men, who were all staying in Minot while working for a Dallas-area contractor on an area wind energy project.
Also, 20-year-old Megan Bauer of Minot was arrested on suspicion of possession of alcohol, as well as two other possession of alcohol warrants from West Fargo. She was convicted of the Minot charge later Monday morning.
