U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Uvalde Station in the Del Rio Sector arrested a man convicted of murder, shortly after he illegally entered the United States, Sept. 13.

Agents from the Uvalde Station apprehended a group of undocumented migrants on Highway 90. All subjects in the group were transported to the Eagle Pass Processing Facility. Record checks revealed that one subject, Reggie Alfredo Larios-Lopez, 43, of Nicaragua, was convicted of multiple felonies, including murder, in 1996 in Miami and sentenced to four years of confinement. Larios-Lopez has been twice deported, most recently in June of this year.

As a convicted felon, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – Re-entry after Deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

All subjects are processed in accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection policies.

Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents assigned to the Laredo South Station arrested a convicted sex offender in Laredo, Texas.

 The arrest occurred on September 15, when agents, while working their assigned duties, were alerted to the unlawful entry of a group of unknown subjects. Agents responded to the area and were able to apprehend a group of individuals in the southern area of the city. After conducting field interviews all subjects were determined to have entered the United States illegally and were placed under arrest.

Record checks were conducted on the subjects which positively identified Gerardo Rodriguez-Castro, a 25-year-old Mexican national and convicted sex offender.  Gerardo Rodriguez-Castro had a prior arrest and felony conviction for Indecent Liberties with a Child and was sentenced to 13-25 months of confinement.

He remains in custody pending further investigation.
