Bizarre ‘ICE Kidnapping’ in Orland Park leads to arrest

Chicago man wanted in connection to case

ORLAND PARK – Orland Park police are looking for a Chicago man who allegedly kidnapped a victim after claiming he and another person were Special Agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

According to police, the attack happened October 12th after subjects approached a victim claiming the victim was under arrest by the ICE agency. The suspects proceeded to cover the victim’s head and ordered the victim into another vehicle. Suspects then stole the victim’s vehicle and drove away with him in a secondary car.

While transporting the victim in route to an unknown destination, the victim was allegedly bounded at hands and legs and had his mouth and eyes covered. The suspects then purportedly demanded money from the victim to be released, releasing the him after taking the victim’s wallet and withdrawing money from the victim’s bank account.

It was later determined the suspects had targeted the man.  

According to reports, less than a day later Orland Park Police Department located the man’s vehicle in Chicago and identified several suspects. Orland Park Investigators conducting an extensive investigation over several months lead to the development of probable cause for the arrest of Jaime Ortiz and Denise Dominguez. 

Dominguez was arrested Tuesday and taken into custody, but Ortiz could not be located. Dominguez is being held on a $250,000 bond and has been charged with Aggravated Kidnapping (Class X Felony) and Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking (Class X Felony).

Jaime Ortiz, 37 of Chicago, is wanted on charges of Aggravated Kidnapping and Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking. 

Anyone with information to the attack is asked to contact Commander Ken Rosinski at (708) 364-8107 or email via  krosinski@orlandpark.org.
