Border Patrol wrapup: Sexual abuse convict arrested

A summary of Border Patrol activities in the Tucson Sector over the past 24 hours, provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection:


Casa Grande station agents on Monday apprehended two men from Tamaulipas, Mexico, for illegal entry. During a background check using the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, agents found one of the men, a 31-year-old, had been convicted of first-degree sodomy and sexual abuse in Fayette County, Ky., and had been sentenced to two years in prison. He was held for criminal prosecution for illegal re-entry of an aggravated felon.

The second man, 39, had been arrested in Baton Rouge, La., on a second-degree murder charge that was later dropped because prosecuting attorneys failed to locate the victim. He was held for criminal prosecution by the U.S. Attorney's Office for illegal entry.

Also on Monday, Douglas agents apprehended a 25-year-old Agua Prieta, Sonora, man who was found to have a criminal record in Maricopa County for unlawful use of a transportation. He'd served six years in prison. The man admitted to having had ties to the Barrio Avenida 31st gang in Agua Prieta and records revealed an affiliation to the Wet Back Power 31st Avenue gang in Phoenix. He was held for criminal prosecution of an aggravated felon.
