Yuma Border Patrol Agents Arrest Sex Offender

Release Date: 
July 30, 2012

Yuma, Ariz. - A sex offender was among three individuals arrested Saturday by Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents for illegally entering the United States.

Agents apprehended the individuals near County 17th Street and the Colorado River. Agents ran a records check through the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) and learned that one of the suspects had an extensive criminal history, which included criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 13, multiple controlled substance violations, and was previously deported from the U.S. The suspect was processed for prosecution.

IAFIS is a valuable tool used by Border Patrol agents to rapidly identify individuals with criminal histories so they may be brought to an appropriate law enforcement resolution. By preventing dangerous individuals from entering the U.S., the Border Patrol continues to make significant progress toward establishing a secure and safe border environment while improving the quality of life for Arizona residents.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials welcome assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling (866) 999-8727 toll free.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control, and protection of our Nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
