TUCSON – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender, Adrian Castro-Garcia, on Monday near Sells.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Tucson Sector agents apprehended Castro-Garcia, a 33-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the country, late Monday evening. Castro-Garcia called 911 after he became lost in the desert after illegally crossing the international border. Agents quickly located him and provided medical attention.

Records checks revealed Castro-Garcia was convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 and again in 2014 by Los Angeles County, California. In both cases he was sentenced to more than 150 days of incarceration.

In both instances, Castro-Garcia was deported after serving time for his conviction.

Castro-Garcia will face federal prosecution for immigration violations.
