Release Date: 
September 1, 2015

CALEXICO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Station arrested a previously deported convicted sex offender in the desert area approximately 13 miles west of the Calexico port of entry today.

The 34-year-old man was apprehended by Border Patrol agents when illegally entered into the United States.  Agents later identified the man as Jesus Bermudez-Alvear, a citizen of Mexico. 

Criminal record checks revealed that Bermudez is a convicted sex offender, convicted of sexual intercourse with a minor out of Santa Ana.  Bermudez was previously removed from the United States and served a 60 day prison term and a three year supervised release on Mar.30, 2000.

Border Patrol has the man in custody.  Bermudez will be presented for criminal prosecution for re-entry after previously being removed.

This is the seventh sex offender arrest in the El Centro Sector area this year.

The El Centro Sector’s Community Awareness Campaign is a simple and effective program to raise public awareness on the indicators of crime and other threats.  We encourage public and private sector employees to remain vigilant and play a key role in keeping our country safe.  Please report any suspicious activity to the Border Community Threat Hotline at 1-800-901-2003.
