Illegal immigrant charged in 3 DUI deaths now also facing weapons counts, authorities say


Ca. (FOX) — An illegal immigrant from Mexico, charged with being drunk and crashing his vehicle into a mobile home in California last month, killing a couple and their 10-year-old son, now also faces federal weapons charges, authorities said.

A pistol that had been reported stolen in Idaho in 2017 was found inside the suspect’s vehicle several days after it was towed from the crash scene, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Later, another weapon was found during a search of the suspect’s home, the report said. Authorities believe the second weapon also had been stolen but was never reported as such.

The suspect, identified as Ismael Huazo-Jardinez, was already facing manslaughter and drunken driving charges when he was indicted Thursday on two counts of being an alien in possession of firearms while in the U.S. illegally, the Bee reported.
