EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – Mexican authorities this week arrested two men wanted for crimes in the United States.
On Tuesday, the Chihuahua state police located a man flagged by Interpol as an international fugitive from justice. Carlos T.S. is wanted on a sexual assault warrant in El Paso and allegedly fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution.
The state police received information on his whereabouts and took him into custody on a street in Downtown Juarez, the Chihuahua Attorney General said.
The middle-aged man, whose full name, exact age and nationality wasn’t immediately released, remained jailed in Juarez pending extradition.
CBP officers coordinated with local, state, federal and international agencies to repatriate the man. He was escorted to the international boundary line by Mexico State Police officials and turned over via the Stanton Dedicated Commuter Lane border crossing.
The individual was secured and escorted to secondary inspection where biometric verification confirmed his identity along with the active warrant for capital murder multiple persons, out of Dallas, Texas.
The murder suspect was arrested by CBP officers and turned over to the United States Marshals Service.
“It is not uncommon for individuals to flee the country to avoid prosecution,” said Port Director Ray Provencio. “CBP frequently collaborates with law enforcement agencies throughout the country and internationally to apprehend criminals and bring them to justice.”
