LAS CRUCES, N.M. – El Paso Sector U.S. Border Patrol agents working at a checkpoint in Las Cruces found themselves pursuing a suspected smuggler after he ran through the inspection area while agents in Clint arrested a convicted felon.

Thursday evening, U.S. Border Patrol agents working at the I-25 immigration checkpoint north of Las Cruces encountered a late model Mitsubishi SUV as it approached the primary inspection area. As agents were inspecting the vehicle, the driver fled the inspection area at a high rate of speed. Agents pursued the suspect and called for assistance from other law enforcement partners in the area. The driver raced north on I-25 highway then exited in Hatch, New Mexico and fled on foot. While unable to locate the individual, agents were able to identify the suspected driver as a Mexican national. The passenger in the vehicle that was being smuggled is a Guatemalan national and is pending removal.

U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested five individuals for illegally entering the United States including one with a history of sexual assault.

Late Monday night, Clint Border Patrol agents were alerted to a group of five individuals illegally crossing into the United States two miles west of the Tornillo Port of Entry. Using their skills and training, agents nearby were able to track and apprehend the five as they attempted to hide in the desert brush. All were transported to the Clint Border Patrol station for further processing.

During record checks, agents found that one of the men, Jaime Rodrigo Saquipulla-Lliguichuzhca, a 41-year-old Ecuadorian national, had been arrested in December 2002 by the New York City Police Department. He was charged and convicted of Statute Rape 3rd (Felony). Saquipulla-Lliguichuzhca was arrested by Homeland Security Investigation Agents in Astoria, Queens, New York in January of this year and was subsequently removed from the U.S. on February 21, 2020. Saquipulla-Lliguichuzhca will be prosecuted for Illegal Re-entry and remanded to the El Paso County Detention Facility to await criminal proceedings.

This is a massive bust. Over the last three weeks, Border Patrol & CBP have seized over $17 million worth of hard narcotics that cartels attempted to smuggle in. And that was in Texas alone. We need more wall built so we can free up agents to seek out more of these smugglers who bring poison into our communities.

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers intercepted hard narcotics with an estimated street value of more than $11.4 million in one enforcement action at the World Trade Bridge.

“These drugs will not reach Main Street USA due to the efforts of the officers in our cargo facilities,” said Port Director Gregory Alvarez, Laredo Port of Entry. “Significant enforcement actions like this one illustrate CBP’s ongoing offensive against criminal networks and their organizations.”

The seizure occurred on Friday, July 3rd at the World Trade Bridge when CBP officers assigned to the cargo facility encountered a vehicle arriving from Mexico. The shipment was referred for a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection, resulting in the discovery of 570.79 pounds of alleged methamphetamine within the consignment.

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $11,415,859.

CBP officers seized the narcotics. The case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
