EL PASO — A police gear cache was found by federal agents at an East Side home during a round-up of deportable immigrants with criminal records last week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Tuesday.

ICE spokeswoman Leticia Zamarripa said agents seized a .22-caliber rifle plus police gear, including six helmets, ski masks, expandable batons and six tactical gear belts at a home in the 3500 block of Oasis Drive. Aron Adrian Leyva Pena, 27, was arrested at the home accused of possession of fraudulent documents.
