A 20-year-old man who is charged with sexual assault of a child was arrested by Customs and Border Protection officers.

Jorge Manual Garcia was traveling from Mexico to the U.S. as a passenger in a 2005 Hyundai Elantra when stopped at an El Paso port of entry. According to a CBP news release, officers in the primary inspection booth were notified that Garcia was being sought by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.

The officers detained him and turned him over to the El Paso Police Department for processing. 

“CBP officers are thorough and diligent in their processing of all arriving people and those efforts routinely identify people being sought by law enforcement,” said Ray Provencio, acting El Paso port director, in the release.
