Gang member caught trying to re-enter US

(Another gang member arrested)….This makes 19 arrests so far this year by El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents.

This week agents arrested a felon gang member with an outstanding warrant. They say the 27 year old Mexican national was caught trying to illegally enter the US about 17 miles west of Calexico. He was later identified as Misriam Aguilar Gutierrez. He was transported to the El Centro Border Patrol Station, where agents discovered he was a member of the South Side Locos street gang out of Concord, which has strong ties to the Sureno criminal organization. Aguilar was found to have an extensive criminal history, including felony and misdemeanor convictions for obstructing a public officer, possession of a controlled substance, and probation violations. His warrant is for failure to appear in court for possession of dangerous drugs in Concord. The Border Patrol says he will be held for prosecution for illegal re-entry into the US after being ordered removed in 2007.
