LAREDO, TX (CBP) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Laredo Port of Entry this week apprehended a San Luis Potosí, Mexico man wanted in Harris County, Texas in connection with an outstanding warrant for homicide.
The fugitive apprehension occurred on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge. A CBP officer at primary inspection referred bus passenger J. Abad Ramirez Chavez, 38, a Mexican citizen from Tamazunchale, San Luis Potosí, Mexico for a secondary examination after he had presented a Mexican passport with an H2A visa.
During the examination, CBP officers verified Ramirez Chavez’s identity, citizenship and confirmed he was wanted on an outstanding state warrant from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office dating back to 2010 for homicide-willful kill-nonfamily-gun.
After confirming the warrant was active, CBP officers turned Ramirez Chavez over to deputy U.S. Marshals for transport to Webb County jail for adjudication of the warrant.
