Border Patrol waylays fugitive parolee, attempted murderer

Release Date

MCALLEN, Texas – On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, agents assigned to the McAllen Border Patrol Station encountered a male United States citizen while they were searching for multiple subjects. Record checks revealed he had an extraditable warrant out for his arrest from the Travis County, Texas Sheriff’s Office. The wanted subject violated his parole and was turned over to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office.

Two days later, the Rio Grande Valley Processing Center performed record checks on a Mexican national who was apprehended the previous day by Corpus Christi agents near Edna, Texas. Records disclosed that the male subject was wanted for attempted murder in Jackson County, Alabama.

All subjects are being processed accordingly.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and to help save lives by reporting suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
