EDINBURG, Texas –Two migrants with sex offenses against children are arrested by law enforcement in the Rio Grande Valley.
At approximately 6 p.m. on Nov. 1, Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station agents responded to a group of migrants making an illegal entry into the United States near Rio Grande City, Texas. The migrants were taken into custody for processing.
At the station, criminal records checks revealed a previously removed Guatemalan National Jose Yojcom-Rocche, as a registered sex offender. Yojcom-Rocche was arrested in 2019 by the Los Angeles Police Department for lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. The 35-year-old man was convicted in 2021 and sentenced to 180 days’ confinement and five years’ probation. Yojcom-Rocche also has an active warrant out of Los Angeles, California.
Approximately one hour later, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers working in Brownsville, Texas, requested assistance after a subject ran from the vehicle during a traffic stop in an attempt to avoid arrest. Fort Brown Border Patrol Station agents determined Humberto Tiburcio-Loyo to be a citizen of Mexico and took him into custody.
At the station, it was discovered that Tiburcio-Loyo, a 33-year-old man, was convicted in 2011 following an arrest for sexual assault of a 12-year-old child in Brownsville, Texas. Tiburcio-Loyo was sentenced to 6 years’ imprisonment. The aggravated felon was removed from the United States earlier this year.
All subjects were processed accordingly.
