BI arrests wanted American pedophile
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested on Saturday an American fugitive wanted in the United States for crimes against minor victims.
BI OIC Commissioner Rogelio D. Gevero Jr. identified the suspect as Tye Braxton Stiger, 35, who was arrested along Diego Cera Avenue in Las Piñas City by the BI Fugitive Search Unit (BI-FSU).
The arrest was pursuant to an order issued by Gevero after the bureau received information from US authorities about Tyler’s record.
Tyler is now deemed an undesirable alien in the US after authorities in that country revoked his passport. Records also reveal that Stiger has an outstanding warrant of arrest issued by the City of Jonesville, Hillsdale County, Michigan in July this year for 35 counts of child pornography-related charges.
In the state of Michigan, where he is accused of preying on children over a six-year period, Stiger is said to have worked as a volunteer Sunday school teacher in local churches.
US authorities said Stiger was charged with multiple counts of sexually abusive activity and possession of child sexually abusive material. Over a dozen videos of him placing hidden cameras at various locations to record minor children were said to have been seized by authorities.
The Immigration Bureau, along with the Department of Justice (DOJ), has expressed its intent to prioritize the deportation of all alien sex offenders. Earlier, DOJ Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla had instructed the Bureau to be more vigilant against foreign pedophiles and to ensure their immediate arrest and deportation.
Gevero said Remulla had met with US law enforcement officials earlier this month to discuss improving the two countries’ collaboration in the fight against cybercrimes, which includes the sexual exploitation of women and children online.
Stiger is now detained at the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig, pending his deportation proceedings.
