DALLAS – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport recently arrested a man with two active felony warrants for indecency with a child.
Angel Omer Sales, 25, was returning to the U.S. from El Salvador on a flight arriving at DFW on Aug. 10 when CBP officers arrested him.
Sales, a U.S. citizen, is wanted in Hurst, Texas for two counts of indecency with a child.
“When we encounter persons wanted by other law enforcement agencies, we verify the warrant and then carry out the appropriate law enforcement action,” said CBP Port Director Cleatus Hunt.
CBP officers turned Sales over to DFW Department of Public Safety for transport to Hurst, Texas.
On a typical day in 2014, CBP officers arrested 21 wanted persons per day at U.S. ports of entry around the country. More information is available about a typical day in CBP in 2014 and previous years.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry.
