Border Patrol’s Spokane Sector arrest former Tijuana Municipal Police Officer

Agents from the U.S. Border Patrol’s Spokane Sector arrested an individual in Othello who was illegally present in the United States and had prior arrests for homicide and drug possession.

Through law enforcement efforts, agents determined that an individual in the Othello area had illegally entered the United States in 2013. Authorities were made aware of his arrest shortly after his entry and subsequently revoked his immigration status.

At the time of his entry, immigration officials were not aware of two arrests in Mexico for homicide and drug possession while working as a Tijuana Municipal Police Officer. Agents arrested and processed the individual for removal proceedings and transported him to Tacoma for his immigration hearing.
