A 68-year-old man wanted on an outstanding warrant for indecency with a child was arrested by officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection working at the Paso Del Norte border crossing on April 23.

According to CBS 11 News, the 68-year-old Mexican man’s warrant was issued out of Athens’s Henderson County Sheriff’s Office.

The 68-year-old was arrested while arriving from Mexico on foot. 

El Paso Acting Port Director Samuel Cleaves said U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers identify and apprehend suspects at the border every day.

“Our ability to identify and apprehend individuals wanted for crimes such as this one illustrates our critical role in border security and public safety,” said Cleaves.

Upon confirming the suspect’s identity and the warrant, officers handed him over to local authorities, where he would be extradited to the originating agency.
