Carrizo Springs Border Patrol Agents Capture Escaped Inmate

Release Date: 
April 23, 2013

DEL RIO, TEXAS—Early Saturday morning, U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Carrizo Springs station captured an inmate who had escaped from a local jail a few hours earlier.

Agents assisted in the search for the fugitive, who escaped from the Crystal City Detention Center around 12:15 a.m. Saturday. The subject, who had been jailed on an Idaho warrant for violent assault, led local authorities on a high-speed chase before fleeing on foot.

Border Patrol agents were able to track the man, later identified as 24-year-old Raymond Ruiz, with the help of a CBP Air and Marine helicopter crew. Agents captured Ruiz around 3:30 a.m. and turned him over to the Dimmit County Sheriff's Office.

The Del Rio Border Patrol sector is an integral part of the South Texas Campaign, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations.
