I am concerned for you. The fact is that, under section 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, a person who has been convicted of an aggravated felony, or a felony crime involving moral turpitude, which includes felony theft, where the sentence is in excess of one year (including probation), makes that person inadmissible, and therefore subject to removal or deportation. ICE has apparently been notified of your conviction status, and may have issued a notice to the county probation office placing you on an immigration hold. There are options to defend against being held in detention pending a hearing. You may have your husband, or an immigration attorney, contact the ICE office in your local area, asking for a Notice to Appear, before an immigration judge, in order to set an appropriate bond, in which you may try to contest the case. It is possible that the case may have an exception where it would not be classified as a removable offense (though this is doubtful), or you may successfully make a case for a waiver based upon a hardship to your family if your husband and children are U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents. If you wish to discuss the case further, please feel free to call or e-mail me.

Sounds like you were convicted of what immigration authorities consider a CIMT (crime involving moral turpitude) i.e., theft, in this case which may be enough to get you deported from the United States which is why the ICE officers were probably looking for you.
Better arrange for a consultation with a local attorney who handles immigration matters and, more specifically, deportation defense and removal matters and who should be able to further advise you regarding this situation.
