Man living in Sioux City illegally will be sent to federal prison


A Guatemalan man, who was deported from the United States following a drug conviction, will spend more than 8-years in federal prison for sneaking back into the country, and living in Sioux City, illegally.

Back in June of 2006, 25-year-old Daniel Saquil-Orozco had three plastic baggies of cocaine, and a kitchen knife with a three-inch blade, that was modified to a double edge.

He was deported.

But, investigators say sometime before December of 2011, Saquil-Orozco snuck back into the U.S. and returned to Sioux City.

Once here, prosecutors say Saquil-Orozco illegally obtained a firearm.

Reports show he physically abused his girlfriend when she tried to escape with her children.

He reportedly held her against her will, and threatened her with the gun he had illegally.

A search of his house uncovered marijuana, a digital gram scale, and notebook that contained a drug ledger.
