YUMA, Ariz. –Border Patrol agents arrested a Honduran national who was later determined to be a convicted sex offender and was previously deported four times.
Osman Antonio Caseres-Munoz, 37, was encountered after he illegally entered the United States through the Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge, near Yuma Sector’s forward operating base, Camp Grip, Dec. 16.
