EDINBURG, Texas –Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley arrested two migrants with serious criminal history.
Last night, Weslaco Border Patrol Station agents arrested a male Mexican national near Donna, Texas. Record Checks revealed the subject, later identified as Adrian Munoz-Zamarripa, was previously arrested by Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office in Edinburg, Texas, for aggravated sexual assault of a child. He was subsequently convicted and sentenced to five years confinement.
Within an hour, McAllen Border Patrol Station (MCS) agents apprehended a group of seven migrants south of McAllen, Texas. During processing, agents discovered that one subject, a Honduran national, had a prior arrest by the Prince Georges County Police Department in Maryland in 2006. He was convicted of 2nd degree attempted murder and sentenced to 20 years confinement.
Border Patrol processed both subjects accordingly.
Even with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, human smugglers continue to try these brazen attempts with zero regard for the lives they endanger nor to the health of the citizens of our great nation. The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.
