LOS ANGELES – Kendall Jenner of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” fame is grateful for the quick work of ICE and LAPD Investigators. The team effort stopped a twice-convicted trespasser from escalated stalking attempts at her California home.
Jenner, a high-fashion runway model and reality-TV personality, recently filed protection orders against John Ford (38), which he violated by trespassing on her property.
ICE reported that Ford had entered the U.S. from Canada at Sweetwater, Montana on 3/29/18 with a non-immigrant B-2 visa, which allowed him to remain in the country for no longer than six months.
Los Angeles police officers arrested the Canadian twice in the past year. The persistent stalker – who served two jail sentences for misdemeanor convictions – was recently discovered a third time – in Jenner’s swimming pool.
Acting on a tip, HSI special agents and officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) located Ford in Albuquerque, NM on Monday. Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs arrested the Canadian holding the expired visitor’s visa in the parking lot of a local hotel.
“This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime,” said Jack P. Staton, special agent in charge of HSI El Paso. “Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behavior didn’t escalate to become a tragedy.”
Ford was processed and served with a notice to appear (NTA) before a federal immigration judge, as he remains in ICE custody in El Paso, Texas
The Kardashian-Jenner family expressed its gratitude for the arrest: “We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Department and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism led to this man’s apprehension. His actions have not only had a severe impact on Kendall’s life, but the entire family’s sense of security, causing us to fear for Kendall’s safety as well as our own. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind.”
