OGDEN -- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has moved its immigration detainees out of Weber County Jail to conduct a review of the facility.
The Weber County Sheriff's Office is awaiting the report of their findings, said Chief Deputy Klint Anderson. He said he's heard that they moved the detainees to Utah County Jail earlier this week.
"I was told it was fewer than 30" inmates who were moved, he said. He was not sure if they all went to Utah County.
He was not sure when the results would come across his desk, but he understands that ICE has completed its review.
Anderson said ICE regularly conducts reviews of the facility, as the agency contracts with it and Utah County Jail to house such detainees. However, he said he has not been given any reason why ICE is conducting its current review.
"I really don't have very much information at this point," Anderson said. Weber County Jail staff referred any questions to Anderson.
An ICE spokesperson could not immediately be reached Friday evening
