Border Patrol Catches Wanted Suspects in South Texas

EDINBURG–U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Rio Grande Valley Sector have arrested several individuals over the last three days who were wanted for serious crimes by other law enforcement agencies.

On Monday morning, Brownsville agents working along the Rio Grande apprehended a group of four people who were attempting to illegally enter the United States.

The group was transported to the station for processing. Once at the Border Patrol station, it was determined one of the men is wanted by the Mexican authorities for escaping from La Paloma Prison in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.

While charges in Mexico are pending on this individual, he will face charges of illegal entry into the United States.

Agents from the McAllen station took custody of a Mexican man on Sunday who was illegally here in the United States.

Checks conducted on the man indicated he was wanted in Waukegan, Ill., on three counts of murder. The man has been turned over to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office pending extradition.

Agents working in Falfurrias arrested a Mexican national Saturday wanted for vehicular homicide with a warrant out of Atlanta, Ga. He was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
