This week, two convicted sex offenders, Mario Bergochea-Ayala, and Roberto Quezada-Meza, were arrested by Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents in two separate incidents, according to CBP.
Casa Grande Station agents arrested the 34-year-old Bergochea-Ayala, from Mexico, after he illegally entered the U.S. east of Lukeville. Agents discovered during processing that Bergochea-Ayala was convicted in 2005 of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor in Downey, California. He was sentenced to 16 months in prison.
Nogales Station agents arrested the 37-year-old Quezada-Meza, a Mexican national, near Amado. Agents learned he was convicted in 2002 of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under the age of 14 in Madera, California and was sentenced to 180 days in jail for his crime.
Both men will be processed for criminal immigration violations.
