RICHMOND, Va. -- A Philadelphia woman has been arrested in connection to a September protest at the Henrico home of acting ICE Director Tony Pham.

On Tuesday, September 8, Henrico Police say a group of people illegally entered Pham's property, located in Henrico’s west end. Pham was not present at the time of the incident

"The subjects protested at his residence, dumping trash in the yard, and caused fear to his family," said a Henrico Police spokesperson.

Nancy Nguyen, of Philadelphia, has been identified as one of the demonstrators. She will be charged with two misdemeanors: Entering Property of Another for the Purposes of Interfering with Property Rights and Dumping Trash.

The 37-year old was served warrants on the two offenses in Pennsylvania.

"While protesting is a protected First Amendment activity, doing so on one’s private property is illegal. Henrico Police is working to identify others who were present on September 8," the spokesperson added.

Anyone with information may submit tips anonymously on the P3Tip app or by calling Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
