NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in New Jersey have removed a Romanian man wanted in his home country on human trafficking and prostitution charges.

Authorities flew 40-year-old Marius Stanga to Bucharest on Tuesday and transferred him to Romanian authorities.

Stanga was convicted of committing theft in Hudson County, N.J., in 2013.

He was transferred to federal custody after his release from jail.

Officials say Stanga said he had entered the U.S. illegally in Arizona in 2012.
