A transient arrested in the murder of Bambi Larson was in the United States illegally and had a lengthy history of arrests in the South Bay and Los Angeles, authorities said Tuesday.

San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia said Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza “stalked” Larson’s neighborhood before allegedly killing her with a knife and blunt force

Garcia then detailed his lengthy criminal record.

“His criminal history convictions consist of in Feb. 2013 he was detained by the Department of Homeland Security at the border near McAllen, Texas, and deported.”

“In 2015, he was arrested for drug paraphernalia. In 2015 he was convicted of burglary in San Jose. In 2016, battery of an officer, resisting arrest and entering a property. In 2016, he was arrested for battery in Los Angeles. In 2017, he was arrested and convicted of false imprisonment in San Jose. On April of 2018, arrested for paraphernalia again. In May, he was arrested for possession of methamphetamine.”

“In August of 2018, he was arrested for prowling. On October 2018, he was arrested for false identification and paraphernalia once again.”

Garcia said Carranza was currently on probation for the possession of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, false imprisonment and burglary.

“Unfortunately, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) placed detainers on this individual six separate times. Two in the Los Angeles area and four in the County of Santa Clara,” he said.

ICE detainers are requests to hold people suspected of being in the country illegally for longer than their jail terms until they can be questioned by federal immigration authorities.

Garcia was critical of the sanctuary city, county and state policies that prevented Carranza from being turned over to immigration officials.

“Those undocumented citizens who are not violent or serious criminals should not fear the police,” he said. “But when we have violent or serious offenders that are preying on our community we must have the ability to protect our residents. We will go to the ends of the earth to find a predator like this. We put the case together, put them in jail and then it is up to the rest of the system to determine what happens next.”

“The City of San Jose and our police department has no control over how the county interacts with federal immigration enforcement in the deportation of violent or serious felons like Carlos Arevalo Carranza.”

Newly released documents reportedly prove that a California county's sanctuary policy saved a homeless illegal immigrant from being deported mere months before he allegedly murdered a 59-year-old mother.

The October 9, 2018 detainer notice from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), obtained by Fox News states that Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, was to be deported.

But the following day, another document was stamped with a notice that stated that the request was 'NOT HONORED PER COUNTY POLICY.'

That document was sent to Santa Clara County.

Four months later, Carranza, 24, stalked Bambi Larson before beating and stabbing her to death in her home, police say.

The immigrant from El Salvador had been on the radar of Immigration and Customs Enforcement since 2013, when he failed to show up in immigration court.

The county's policy on detainer requests states that it will 'exercise its discretion to honor the request' if it finds that the detainee is convicted of a serious or violent felony offense.

Officials in the Northern California city of San Jose have since criticized such so-called 'sanctuary policies' they say prevented federal authorities from detaining a gang member in the country illegally before he allegedly killed the woman.

Supervisors in a California county refused to change a sanctuary policy that critics say prompted the release from jail of a gang member in the country illegally before he allegedly killed a woman in San Jose.

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 on Tuesday to retain the policy of not holding immigration suspects without a warrant or a judicial order unless the person is charged with a crime.

The decision came after some local officials pushed the county to inform Immigration and Customs Enforcement about the upcoming release of violent felons.

The policy came under criticism after the February 28 slaying of 54-year-old Bambi Larson.

Police later arrested Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, an immigrant from El Salvador who had been on the radar of ICE since 2013, when officials said he failed to show up in immigration court.

Police said Arevalo Carranza had been arrested in January on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and then released.

San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia also revealed Carranza's lengthy criminal history, which began in 2013 when he was arrested crossing the border illegally in Texas and deported back to Mexico.=

He has been arrested at least 10 times with three convictions for offences ranging from drug possession to battery, false imprisonment and burglary.

He was on probation for possession of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, false imprisonment and burglary at the time of the alleged killing, police said.

ICE had applied nine times for a detainer on Carranza, a move which allows suspects to be held longer than their prison term so their immigration status can be investigated by federal officials.

All nine requests had been ignored by county officials, ICE field director Erik Bonnar said, allowing Carranza to be freed so he could offend again.

Part of the reason jails don’t comply is because of money— the feds don’t reimburse counties/states for holding on to someone until they get around to him.

But if the county insists on ‘exercising its discretion’ then, yeah, they should’ve held this guy.

If only there were some way to deal with a case like this definitively. Something that could be done that not only would deal out Justice in this case, but also serve as a warning to other potential perps with similar intent and background...
