TUCSON, Ariz. – Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents from the Ajo and Nogales Stations arrested two previously deported gang members in southern Arizona on Friday and Sunday; both with criminal histories in the United States.

Agents apprehended the group in the mountains north of Ajo, Arizona on Friday. Felix is a documented Sureno gang member with an extensive criminal history in multiple California cities.

On Monday, Nogales Station agents arrested Cesar Mozqueda-Orozco, a 41-year-old Mexican national, found in the desert west of Nogales after he entered the country illegally.
