Release Date: 
December 30, 2015

TUCSON, Ariz. – A U.S. Marshal contacted Customs and Border Protection officers Tuesday afternoon to report that Mexican immigration officials were in route to the Port of Lukeville, Arizona, with a U.S. fugitive sex offender wanted in Maricopa County for failure to appear and with $20,000 bound.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., Lance Cody Wallis, a 43-year-old U.S. citizen with a fully extraditable warrant out of Maricopa County, was surrendered to CBP Field Operations officers.  Wallis was held at the port until a Pima County deputy arrived to take custody.

CBP's Office of Field Operations is the primary organization within Homeland Security tasked with an anti-terrorism mission at our nation’s ports. CBP officers screen all people, vehicles and goods entering the United States while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel. Their mission also includes carrying out border-related duties, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration and trade laws, and protecting the nation's food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases.
