Yesterday morning a pick-up truck crashed into a Katy home in the 2800 block of Stableview Court in Katy. The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene. Luckily no one was in the home at the time.

On Thursday, September 26, around 9:30am, the FBCSO was called to the neighborhood just south of the Great Southwest Equestrian Center to investigate a crash at a private residence.

Deputies responded to a 911 call from a neighbor in the subdivision. Investigators said the driver was traveling on Cinco Boulevard, behind the home, when he hit a curb causing the vehicle to become airborne. (See map below.)

“The truck landed in the living room and exited through the front of the house where it crashed into a tree,” says a news release from Sheriff Troy Nehls, FBCSO.

The driver fled the scene but was quickly detained without incident. The driver, Celso Isaias Pu Ajucum, 29, was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries. He has been booked into the Fort Bend County Jail and charged with reckless driving and driving without a license.

At the time of the incident, the family was not home; the children were in school. Neighbors have offered to help the family while they're displaced from their home.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

ICE Hold for Pu Ajucum

The FBCSO released information Friday afternoon that Pu Ajucum has been put on an “Ice Hold.” An Ice Hold is typically applied when an immigrant with no legal status is arrested.

When an Ice Hold is in place, local law enforcement may not release the person in custody, even on bond. Authorities can essentially hold the person for a period of 48 hours (not including weekends) after the time they would have been released. Immigration officials can then detain and transfer them into federal custody for an alleged immigration violation.

The mission of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “is to protect America from the cross-border crime and illegal immigration that threaten national security and public safety.”
