Tucson, Ariz. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection Field Operations officers at the Port of Nogales arrested a Mesa man returning from Mexico earlier today after learning he has an outstanding warrant for child molestation out of Mesa, Arizona.
The man told officers he has been living in Mexico for the past three months and was returning to Phoenix. Officers referred the man for secondary inspection to confirm his identity and citizenship.
A background and fingerprint check revealed his identity as 28-year-old Evan Allen Bramer, wanted in Maricopa County. Officers turned Bramer over to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s office for extradition.
According to the Maricopa County Adult Probation Office, Bramer is an unregistered sex offender who absconded in late January 2015 when he allegedly walked out of the probation office without permission.
