CBP Officers in Douglas nab sex offender
Customs and Border Protection Officers in Douglas arrested a 31-year old Mexican national last week as he attempted to enter the United States from Mexico.
According to a press release from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office the man, who is not being identified at this time, is a registered sex offender in the state of Florida.
The press release states he attempted to enter the United States through a pedestrian lane at the Douglas Port and that when he presented his documents, officers suspected him as an imposter and referred him for additional questioning.
A routine records check revealed the subject’s true identity as an individual who had previously been deported following a conviction for Lewd and Lascivious Battery for which he served a two-year prison sentence in Clearwater, Fla.
The subject was immediately taken into custody, processed, and is currently being detained pending prosecution.
