A summary of Border Patrol activities in the Tucson Sector since Thursday, provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection:

Arrests

Agents from the Douglas Station apprehended a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Queretaro, Mexico, on Thursday. The man has an active warrant for sexual assault out of Washington County, Ore. He was turned over to the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office for extradition.

Douglas Station agents on Friday apprehended a 48-year-old who was in the United States illegally. After a record check, it was found that the man had been convicted in Albuquerque on a charge of attempting to commit child abuse, death or great bodily harm. He was held for prosecution.

On Saturday, Douglas Station agents apprehended a 30-year-old illegal alien from Mexico. The man had been charged in California for lewd or lascivious acts with a child. He was being held for prosecution.

Rescues

On Saturday, Ajo agents responded to a call that two illegal aliens were lost northwest of Lukeville. The men, one from Guatemala and one from Mexico, were treated for dehydration by the Border Patrol's Search, Trauma and Rescue Unit and transported to the Ajo Station for processing.

Recovery

Casa Grande Station agents discovered human remains Saturday while patrolling the west desert west of U.S. 42. The Tohono O’odham Police Department was notified and took over the investigation.
