Eagle Pass, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Eagle Pass port of entry this week apprehended a San Antonio man wanted on an outstanding warrant for sexual assault of a child.
The apprehension occurred on April 25 at Camino Real International Bridge. A CBP officer referred a vehicle containing the 34-year old, Roberto Maldonado Ibarra, a Mexican citizen from San Antonio, Texas for a secondary examination. During the examination, CBP officers verified Maldonado Ibarra's identity and confirmed he had an outstanding state warrant from San Antonio, Texas for sexual assault of a child. After confirming the warrant was active, CBP officers turned Maldonado Ibarra over to the custody of Maverick County sheriff's deputies for transport to a local jail pending extradition proceedings.
"This is an excellent fugitive apprehension by our frontline CBP officers and comes on the heels of a similar apprehension last month for a man wanted on sexual assault charges involving a child," said Cynthia O. Rodriguez, CBP Port Director, Eagle Pass. "Conducting thorough examinations and detaining and apprehending people who have outstanding warrants, particularly those of a violent or sexual nature, is an important component to our border security work at the port of entry."
