U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested a wanted child sex offender earlier this week. 

Agents arrested David Wayne Kane at the Presidio Port of Entry on Tuesday. 

Kande was wanted in Marfa on suspicion of sexual abuse of a child, a CBP news release said.

Agents were alerted to his warrant as Kane was returning to the U.S. from Mexico.

“Drug smugglers and criminals will routinely try to mingle with legal travelers using the port,” said Michael Neipert, CBP Presidio Port Director, in a news release. “The vigilance of CBP officers working at the Presidio port of entry identified and removed an alleged criminal from the streets of America.”

He is being held on a $150,000 bond, CBP said.
