New details have been released about five people arrested in Owensboro, Kentucky last week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

Four of the five people arrested in Daviess County are from Mexico and one is from Guatemala. They range in age from 20 to 35.

A spokeswoman from the Chicago office of ICE said the arrests in Owensboro on Sept. 28 were part of a “targeted routine enforcement operation.”

The two women and three men face charges that include assault, theft, public intoxication, a falsified employment document and driving under the influence.

The ICE spokeswoman said the Owensboro arrests were not part of  'Operation Safe City,' a national effort last week that resulted in the arrests about 500 people in cities across the U.S.
