(Gang Member arrested)…He was taken into custody early Thursday morning
. Border Patrol agents working out of the Calexico station made the arrest near the Calexico Port of Entry. The man was originally detained for suspicion of illegal entry into the United States. It was determined the suspect was a citizen of Mexico. A records check identified the man as 32-year-old Benedicto Anthony Cifuentes, and that he had a previous criminal record. In 2004 Cifuentes was convicted for felony robbery by force or fear and was sentenced to 4 years in prison. In 2007, he violated parole and returned to prison to finish his original sentence. In 2016 Cifuentes was convicted of illegal re-entry into the United States. The 32 year old admitted to agents that he was a member of the Head Hunters Street Gang out of Los Angeles. Cifuentes is being held pending prosecution.
