Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Progreso Port of Entry Arrest Man Wanted for Aggravated Robbery

Release Date: 
April 4, 2012

Progreso, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Progreso Port of Entry apprehended a man wanted on an outstanding warrant for aggravated robbery from the McAllen Police Department.

On April 2, CBP officers at the Progreso International Bridge took custody of a man identified as Aaron Solórzano, 24, a United States citizen and resident of Palmview, who arrived at the port of entry as a pedestrian escorted by Mexican authorities. Initially the McAllen police department contacted Mexican authorities, who in turn contacted the Progreso Port of Entry once they had the subject in custody. Mexican authorities advised they would bring the wanted fugitive to the Progreso Port of Entry. Late last night Aaron Solórzano was turned over to CBP officers at the Progreso Port of Entry. At pedestrian primary inspection, CBP officers consulted a national law enforcement database which revealed an active arrest warrant for aggravated robbery for Solórzano. He was escorted to secondary where CBP officers confirmed an active arrest warrant from the McAllen Police Department. Pending charges against Solórzano are aggravated robbery at a local department store. CBP officers arrested Aaron Solórzano and subsequently turned him over to the custody of the McAllen Police Department. Solórzano was transported to the McAllen City Jail and will face pending charges of aggravated robbery.

"A close working relationship with the McAllen Police Department and with Mexican authorities assisted CBP officers in making this arrest. This man will now face pending aggravated robbery charges in a court in McAllen, Texas. I applaud our officers and our counterparts in Mexico for their assistance in this case," said Carlos Rodriguez, CBP Port Director, Progreso Port of Entry.
