SAN DIEGO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the San Ysidro port of entry Wednesday discovered a man was wanted for homicide by the San Diego County Sherriff’s Office.  

On Jan. 25, at about 7:45 p.m., Mexican officials escorted a man to the San Ysidro pedestrian border crossing, Ped West.  A CBP officer ran a fingerprint query of law enforcement databases and discovered a possible match for an active outstanding felony warrant for his arrest.

CBP officers confirmed the man's identity as 30-year-old Jorge Ibarra, a U.S. citizen, and that he was the subject of an outstanding warrant for homicide.   The warrant was issued at the request of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department with bail set at $1 million.

Ibarra was transferred to the custody of U.S. Deputy Marshals and booked into the San Diego Central Jail.
