Nogales CBP Agents Arrest Convicted Sex Offender

TUCSON, Ariz. – United States Border Patrol agents assigned to the Nogales Station arrested a previously deported Mexican national with several prior felony convictions Thursday afternoon.

Border Patrol agents patrolling approximately 2 miles west of Nogales, Arizona, encountered a man who had illegally entered the country, later identified as Fernando Garcia-Loya.

While processing the 31-year-old illegal alien, agents conducted a records check and learned of his previous conviction in Provo, Utah for forcible sex abuse in 2009, and 2016 felony convictions for re-entry of a deported alien, and failure to register as a sex offender.

Garcia is being held in federal custody pending prosecution for criminal and immigration violations.
