Illegal alien/convicted sex offender found in Woodville

Tyler County Booster

Agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) notified the Woodville police department recently of an illegal alien living under an assumed name and possibly hiding in Woodville. The police department began a weeklong surveillance at the 700 block of North Beech. The information was confirmed and officers from the Woodville PD, ICE and U.S. Marshalls apprehended Paul Thornton, age 29 of the United Kingdom. Thornton was hiding in the residence where he lived with his wife, who was unaware of his real identity. She fully cooperated with the police and was not charged. Thornton, who was a convicted sex offender in the United Kingdom and who falsified documents to enter the United States, was remanded into federal custody and transported Paul Thorton to Houston.
