Brownsville, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Brownsville Port of Entry apprehended a man on an arrest warrant for sexual assault of a child from Corpus Christi, Texas.
On Friday, Nov. 5, CBP officers at the Gateway International Bridge referred a male pedestrian identified as Ivan Estevan Claudio, 29, a United States citizen who resides in Corpus Christi, Texas for a secondary examination. A CBP officer's primary checks of a national database revealed a possible active warrant for sexual assault of a child for Claudio. At secondary, CBP officers confirmed the active warrant for Ivan Estevan Claudio. Pending charges against Ivan Estevan Claudio are related to a case from Nueces County in the Corpus Christi, Texas area for sexual assault of a child. CBP officers arrested Claudio and subsequently turned him over to the custody of a Cameron County sheriff's department. Ivan Estevan Claudio was transported to the Carrizales/Rucker Detention Center pending extradition to Corpus Christi, Texas.
"CBP officers' primary checks identified Claudio as a wanted person out of Nueces County, Corpus Christi, Texas. The apprehension of this fugitive is a direct result of the outstanding vigilance our officers employ each day," said Michael Freeman, CBP Port Director, Brownsville Port of Entry. "Apprehending fugitives wanted for sex-related charges involving children clearly illustrates CBP's role in keeping our communities safe and secure."
