SAN DIEGO—U.S. Border Patrol agents patrolling in Boulevard, Calif. near the U.S./Mexico International Border arrested a man who is wanted for kidnapping in Mexico on Tuesday.

On Jan. 9, 2018, agents on patrol encountered and arrested three individuals for illegal entry into the United States.

The three Mexican nationals were then transported to a nearby station for processing. At the station, record checks revealed that one of the men had an outstanding warrant originating from Mexico and was a fugitive wanted for aggravated kidnapping.

U.S. Border Patrol, in coordination with the Mexican Attorney General, San Diego Attaché Office, turned over the subject to Mexican authorities.

To prevent the illicit smuggling of humans, drugs, and other contraband, the U.S. Border Patrol maintains a high level of vigilance on major corridors of egress away from our Nation’s borders. To report suspicious activity to the U.S. Border Patrol, contact San Diego Sector at (619) 498-9900.
