SELLS – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender Monday near Sells.
Records checks revealed Castro-Garcia was convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 and again in 2014 by Los Angeles County, California. In both cases, he was sentenced to more than 150 days of incarceration.
Tucson Sector agents apprehended Adrian Castro-Garcia, a 33-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the country, late Monday evening. Castro-Garcia called 911 after he became lost in the desert after illegally crossing the international border. Agents quickly located him and provided medical attention.
In both instances, Castro-Garcia was deported after serving time for his conviction.
Castro-Garcia will face federal prosecution for immigration violations.
