U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers working at the Presidio port of entry took custody of a fugitive listed on Texas DPS 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list.
The man was processed by CBP officers after he was brought to the port by Mexican law enforcement officials Thursday afternoon.
“It is not uncommon for CBP officers to encounter fugitives who are returning to the U.S. after fleeing to a foreign country to avoid prosecution, “said Michael Neipert, CBP Presidio Port Director.
“In this case the cooperative spirit existing between U.S. and Mexican law enforcement agencies led to the apprehension and identification of this high profile target.”
Daniel Carrillo was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list in March 2014, and was taken into custody on March 8, 2018, by Mexican law enforcement authorities in Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Carrillo, a U.S. citizen, is affiliated to the Partido Revolucionario Mexicano gang.
In 1999, Carrillo was convicted of sexually assaulting a 4 year-old boy in Brewster County. He subsequently received a ten year sentence in TDCJ prison.
In 2011, while residing in Houston County, Carrillo was arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon after he allegedly attacked a female with a weapon.
He later failed to appear for trial and a warrant was issued in December 2012 by Houston County for his arrest.
