Brownsville, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Brownsville Port of Entry on Friday apprehended a man wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service on homicide and rape charges.
On July 27, CBP officers working northbound pedestrian traffic at the Gateway International Bridge encountered a male pedestrian. The man, identified as Jusino Tello Munoz, 47, a citizen of Mexico and resident of Franklin, Tenn. was escorted to secondary for verification of a possible outstanding arrest warrant for homicide and rape. At secondary, a CBP officer's checks of a CBP database identified Jusino Tello Munoz as the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant from the U.S. Marshals Service in Nashville, Tenn. Jusino Tello Munoz is a wanted fugitive from Mexican authorities facing outstanding charges in that country for homicide and rape. CBP officers arrested Jusino Tello Munoz and subsequently turned him over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. Jusino Tello Munoz was transported to the Carrizales/Rucker Detention Center pending extradition to Mexico.
"An alert presence on the frontline has resulted in the arrest of this wanted fugitive. Thanks to our frontline officers at the Brownsville Port of Entry, this wanted fugitive will be extradited to face pending charges of homicide and rape in Mexico. Vigilance and dedication has resulted in another great arrest by CBP," said Michael Freeman, CBP Port Director, Brownsville Port of Entry.
