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-Berreles - 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.
