Police say they have called Immigration and Customs Enforcement regarding a previously deported felon and gang member after he was stopped Sunday evening leaving Rengstorff Park with three other known gang members.
Miguel Martinez, 33, was booked in the county's main jail for lying about his identity, police say, and is on immigration "hold" until he can be deported again.
Police say Martinez and the three other known Sureno gang members were driving out of the park when an officer -- a member of the police department's Gang Suppression Team -- stopped their car on a traffic violation. The officer recognized one of the passengers as a gang member and thought he was possibly violating his probation (he was not).
Police found a set of brass knuckles and arrested Jose Posadas, also 33, for possession of a dangerous weapon.
