Release Date

LAREDO, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents from the Cotulla Station arrested a wanted undocumented criminal individual near Encinal, Texas.

The arrest occurred on Dec. 8, when agents apprehended a group of six undocumented individuals inside a ranch west of Encinal.  One undocumented individual was identified as Bryan Pineda-Lopez, a 25-year-old Mexican national.  Record checks revealed that Pineda-Lopez had an active warrant out of Mexico.  Laredo Sector Foreign Operations Branch agents contacted their partners with the Government of Mexico and verified that the warrant was extraditable.  Pineda-Lopez was turned over to Mexican authorities.
