U.S. Border Patrol Arrest Aggravated Felon from Honduras

Release Date: 
February 13, 2014

Buffalo Buffalo Sector Border Patrol agents identify and arrest a 38-year-old citizen of Honduras, who is a convicted sex offender in the United States.

On Feb. 11, Border Patrol agents from the Buffalo Station apprehended a citizen of Honduras who was present in the United States illegally.

During processing, the subject's biographical and biometric information was submitted into the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), which positively identified the subject, and revealed prior convictions including attempted rape of a minor.

The Border Patrol strives to keep dangerous individuals from reaching local communities. All individuals appended undergo a criminal history check using the IAFIS, allowing agents to quickly identify and classify violent criminals and wanted persons. We work closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in our efforts and this case is being presented for prosecution.  

U.S. Customs and Border Protection welcomes assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling (800) 331-0353 toll free.
