Del Rio, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Del Rio Port of Entry on Thursday apprehended an Arlington, Texas man wanted on an outstanding warrant for sexual assault.
The apprehension occurred on Nov. 18 at the international bridge. A CBP officer referred a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Cesar Treviño, a 40-year-old male U.S. citizen from Arlington, Texas for a secondary examination. A query of CBP national database systems at primary inspection revealed he was a possible match to an outstanding warrant. In secondary, CBP officers verified Treviño's identity and confirmed he had an outstanding warrant from Waco, Texas for sexual assault. After confirming the warrant was active, CBP officers turned Treviño over to the custody of Del Rio police officers for transport to local jail pending extradition proceedings.
"Our frontline CBP officers continue to remain vigilant at the port of entry and their continued use of CBP national databases at primary has yielded another fugitive wanted for an alleged sex-related offense," said Michael Perez, CBP port director, Del Rio. "Intercepting people with outstanding warrants of a sexual nature is another example of CBP's commitment to keeping our communities safe."
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. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
