(Another felon gang member caught)….This time by Calexico Border Patrol agents.

Sunday agents arrested 39-year-old Carlos Yee Yescas as he attempted to enter the USS illegally from Mexico. He was arrested near a busy shopping area north of the border fence in Downtown Calexico. The 39 year old was transported to the Calexico Border Patrol Station where it was revealed he was an active member of a street gang out of Indio, which has strong ties to the Sureno criminal street gang. This is the 13th gang member arrested in the El Centro Sector area this year. The gang member is a convicted felon for shooting a firearm at a dwelling and vehicle in Riverside County, causing great bodily harm and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Yee also has previous convictions related to obstruction of a police officer, possession of a firearm and controlled substance. Border Patrol agents say the gang member is in custody and will be prosecuted for re-entry of an alien.
