U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported Mexican national early Monday morning.
The man , identified as Felipe Perez-Landa , is currently wanted by Mexican authorities for having ties with organized crime and for kidnapping. Mexican police also identified Perez-Landa as a " sicario " . a term commonly used to describe a hitman for hire.
Perez-Landa was arrested after agents stopped a vehicle on Interstate 10 and determined that one of the occupants was illegally in the U.S. Further investigation determined that the subject had an outstanding warrant issued by Mexican law enforcement. Perez-Landa remains in Border Patrol custody pending reinstatement of the prior deportation and extradition to Mexico.
