Through nine arrests, no one questioned whether 14-year-old Noel Cruz-Diego was in the U.S. legally until he was charged with burglary, robbery and stabbing a Lakeland man 43 times last month. 14 year old Noel Cruz-Diego appears in court for a first appearance bond hearing at the Polk County Jail in Bartow Fl.., Tuesday December 8, 2009. Cruz-Diego is charged with attempted felony murder and burglary in an attack on Daniel Granton on November 18. Juvenile arrest reports obtained by The Ledger this week detail charges against him during 2 1/2 years and show that law enforcement knew for at least two years the teen was born in Mexico. But an immigration detainer wasn’t placed on the teenager until recently by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, when the agency was notified of Cruz-Diego’s questionable status by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, according to DHS officials. Although a minor, Cruz-Diego faces adult charges in the most recent case, in which he is accused of breaking into Daniel Granton’s home Nov. 18 and stabbing him.
