Walton Police say they had to chase a suspect into the cold waters of the Delaware River in what had started out as a stop for speeding April 8.

Police say they pulled 27 year old Noel Rubio-Cruz over on Stockton Avenue, found he was driving on a suspended registration and his two passengers were in the country illegally.

One of those passengers, 18 year old Alfredo Maldonado-Garcia ran from police and crossed the river twice before being apprehended.

47 year old Adrian Peralta-Reyes, who was also riding in Rubio-Cruz’s vehicle, was wanted on an immigration warrant dating back close to 18 years.

Rubio-Cruz is charged with speeding and driving on a suspended registration.  He was sent to the Delaware County Jail on $2,000 bail.

Peralta-Reyez was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Maldonado-Garcia is charged with obstructing governmental administration.  After being treated for symptoms of hypothermia from his dip in the Delaware, the teen was sent to the county jail on $4,000 bail.
