Two California fugitives were arrested by VicPD this week and handed over to the Canadian Border Service Agency for likely deportation.
Dustin Ilar and Daniel Mota were arrested March 2 after the California Fugitive Apprehension Team contacted VicPD on a tip the wanted felons were living in Esquimalt.
Ilar was arrested at an apartment in the 400-block of Lampson St., while Mota was arrested in the 2900-block of Jutland Rd.
On a Sacramento, Cali. fugitive website, Ilar is listed as a wanted felon for parole violation and has previous convictions for firearms possession.
The two men had entered Canada illegally and will now face a deportation hearing, said Const. Mike Russell.
