Two undocumented immigrants arrested after Olean traffic stop

Two undocumented immigrants were arrested Wednesday morning following a traffic stop on Interstate 86 in Olean, according to the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office.

After a car was stopped shortly after 9:20 a.m. on I-86 East for driving on the shoulder of the highway, deputies determined that the occupants of the car were "illegal aliens," the sheriff's office reported.

Gerino Tapia Barrera, 37, and Augustin Barrera Rojas, 55, both of Mexico, were arrested and taken into custody by agents from the U.S. Border Patrol.

A third individual was released as he had previously been arrested by the Border Patrol and was already in the immigration court system, deputies said.
