BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston have arrested a Brazilian fugitive, who was convicted of murder in Brazil.

The 50-year-old foreign national, who has been identified as a confirmed, active member of Primeiro Comando Da Capital (PCC) – Brazil’s largest criminal gang organization – has been convicted of homicide in his native country.

According to ERO, he unlawfully entered the United States near San Luiz, Arizona, in March 2023. He was apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol, placed into removal proceedings, and served a notice to appear before an immigration judge after he withheld information on his murder conviction.

“Foreign fugitives, like this Brazilian noncitizen, who are evading justice will not find safe harbor in our communities,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons. “The dedicated officers of ERO Boston have proven time and again that we are committed to apprehending those, like this individual, who threaten our safety and removing them from our communities and our nation.”

The Brazilian gang member has an extensive, violent criminal history which includes his conviction for homicide as well as convictions for attempted murder, robbery and aggravated assault on a police officer in Brazil. According to a later investigation, he withheld information on his prior criminal convictions when U.S. Border Patrol apprehended and interviewed him.

The name of the fugitive was not released.
