HARRISBURG, PA — The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Balmoth Alberto Caceres-Henriquez, age 36, of Sonsonate, El Salvador, was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury on illegal reentry charges.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the indictment alleges that Caceres-Henriquez was removed from the United States on October 24, 2006, through Harlingen Texas, and it is alleged that he reentered the United States without first obtaining legal permission to do so.  The indictment also alleges that on June 1, 2022, Caceres-Henriquez was encountered in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations and the Carlisle Borough Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jaime M. Keating is prosecuting the case.

The maximum penalty under federal law for this offense is 2 years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine. A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
