“Border Patrol agents routinely encounter dangerous people with criminal histories and active warrants. Our agents’ constant vigilance is what keeps our communities safe,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez.

On Feb. 26, an agent assigned to the Eagle Pass South Station apprehended Luis Rodriguez-Bravo, 44, who was in the United States illegally. During processing, agents discovered that Rodriguez-Bravo is wanted in North Carolina’s Randolph County for two counts of statutory rape of a minor.

Rodriguez-Bravo faces a charge of 8 USC § 1325 – illegal entry – which carries a maximum sentence of six months in prison. When Rodriguez-Bravo completes his sentence for immigration violations, he will be extradited to North Carolina to face charges there.

The Del Rio Border Patrol Sector is part of the Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations. To report suspicious activity call the Del Rio Sector’s toll free number at 1-866-511-8727.
