PROGRESO, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Progreso/Donna Port of Entry this weekend apprehended a local man wanted in Hidalgo County, Texas in connection with an outstanding warrant relative to an aggravated sexual assault of a child case.
“The Rio Grande Valley can rest easier at night knowing that our CBP officers at Progreso/Donna Port of Entry have apprehended a man wanted by local authorities on an outstanding warrant for sex-related charges involving a child,” said Acting Port Director Alfonso De La Garza, Progreso/Donna Port of Entry. “Their continued vigilance and attention to detail helps keep our community safe.”
The fugitive apprehension occurred on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015 at the Progreso International Bridge. A CBP officer at primary inspection referred pedestrian Juan Daniel Davila, 30, a U.S. citizen originally from Monterrey, Mexico for a secondary examination. During the examination, CBP officers verified Davila’s identity, citizenship and confirmed he was wanted on an outstanding state warrant from the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear stemming from an original charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. After confirming the warrant was active, CBP officers turned Davila over to Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputies for transport to Hidalgo County jail for adjudication of the warrant.
