PHILADELPHIA — A man wanted in his home country of the Democratic Republic of Congo for multiple charges, including for trafficking stolen vehicles, was turned over to Congolese authorities by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Dandy Somwe Kapila, 29, has an active warrant for his arrest on charges of trafficking in stolen vehicles, fraud, forgery, and falsification charges, issued by Congolese law enforcement.

Kapila, a former lawful permanent resident, was convicted federally of mail fraud and failure to appear in 2014, and sentenced to 21 months imprisonment. He was ordered removed in February 2016, by an immigration judge, paving the way for his removal.

Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed more than 1,700 foreign fugitives from the United States who were sought in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder.
