Suspended Florida immigration enforcement chief arrested

MIAMI (Reuters) – The suspended chief of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Miami was arrested yesterday, according to jail records, and local media said the arrest involved charges of possessing and distributing child pornography over the Internet.

Public records from the Broward County jail listed the arrest of Anthony Mangione, 50, but did not give the charges involved.

The mug shot released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office showed the same Anthony Mangione who since 2007 and until April this year had been special agent in charge of the ICE field office in Miami, which covers Florida and Puerto Rico.

ICE spokespersons in Miami and Washington and the FBI in Miami referred queries to the Department of Justice. Justice spokeswoman Laura Sweeney declined to comment.
