Border Patrol Catches Sex Offender In Del Rio

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a convicted sex offender Tuesday morning.

Agents patrolling a local ranch near the Buena Vista area encountered 46-year old Jose Luis Dones-BerrelesĀ  - an undocumented immigrant from Mexico.

During processing, agents discovered that Dones-Berreles had been previously deported from the United States and was a registered sex offender.

A criminal records check revealed that Dones-Berreles has a 2009 conviction out of Harris County for indecency with a child and served two years on that charge.

For Fiscal Year 2013, the Del Rio Sector has apprehended a total of seven convicted sex offenders.
