Racine, WI - Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 34, was extradited to Wisconsin from Lake County, Illinois after charges for making terrorist threats were filed. Vargas-Rosas is charged with one felony count for making terrorist threats and one misdemeanor count for disorderly conduct. If convicted, Vargas-Rosas is facing up to 3 years and six months in prison for a felony and 90 days and up to $1,000 in fines for the disorderly conduct. A $10,000 bond was set for Vargas-Rosas release, but an immigration hold has been placed by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The suspect who is undocumented had been deported twice and had re-entered the U.S., according to ICE.
Vargas-Rosas was booked at the Racine County Jail. The suspect was taken into custody after he got into an argument with several passengers in a Greyhound bus en route to Chicago from Milwaukee. Several passengers called 911 and said that Vargas-Rosas was making death threats. He was taken into custody in Lake County, Illinois by Sheriff's deputies after the bus stopped. The bus driver failed to stop for authorities on the highway and was stopped at least 17 miles later when authorities had to spike the front tires.
Authorities haven't released any information about what triggered the argument with several passengers.
