Brownsville, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Veterans’ International Bridge apprehended a man on an active arrest warrant for sexual assault from Cameron County.

 “A CBP officer’s primary checks identified Adian Juarez as a wanted fugitive. This wanted person will face pending charges in Cameron County in large part due to the outstanding vigilance by our officers on the frontlines of our nation’s borders," said CBP Port Director, Petra Horne, Brownsville Port of Entry.

On Monday, April 13, CBP officers at the Veterans’ International Bridge encountered a man later identified as a wanted fugitive.
