Wilton Driver Held on Immigration Charge

WILTON, Conn. – A routine traffic stop Saturday morning resulted in the arrest of a 28-year-old Brazilian national on a warrant from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Aline Rodrigues-Monteiro Cunha was unable to produce a license early Saturday morning when she was stopped for not having her headlights turned on, police said. Wilton Police Lt. Stephen Brennan said when a check was run on the woman's name it was learned that ICE had a detain order for her.

No information was available on what the ICE warrant was for; however, Brennan said that it originated in Vermont and was passed to the Hartford office, which then contacted the Wilton Police Department.

Wilton police were instructed to hold Cunha over night until ICE was able to pick her up.

Also from the police blotter:

  • Fifty-four-year-old Wilton resident Robert Zwart was charged with breach of peace and trespassing at the Danbury Road Dunkin Donuts Saturday evening. According to a report, Zwart was bothering customers. Brennan said that he was reported to have been in the store earlier that day, only to return at around 9 p.m. Police were called to the scene around 9:30 p.m. and Zwart was told that he was no longer welcome at the store. The report says he left, only to return some time later. Police were still on the scene and took him into custody and set a $1,000 bond.
  • A newspaper deliveryman reported to police that his car was struck by a BB  and that this was the second such occurrence. The report states that it happened at the same place on Middlebrook Farm Road as the previous incident. The driver said  his windshield was hit and cracked. Police said the physical evidence was consistent with a shot from a BB gun or airsoft gun. The investigation is ongoing.
  • The store manager at Wheels contacted police to inform them a stolen credit card had been used to purchase $375 worth of items. The report says the card owner informed the store that the card was stolen. Police say there is a suspect but that they are still collecting information.
  • Two Bank of America “courtesy checks” were cashed, one for $6,200 and another for $5,200, police report. Both were made out to cash. The account owner called police when the cashed checks were noticed on the statement. The investigation is still ongoing.
