Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon — The National Migration Institute and the State Investigation Agency has captured one of Texas’10 most wanted fugitives. On Wednesday, José Manuel “H” was arrested and deported to Texas to face charges in a U.S. court.
He was wanted on two counts of sexual abuse against a minor in the Texas town of Pecos. The National Migration Institute (INM) and the State Investigation Agency of Nuevo León arrested him from inside a private home in the city of Guadalupe, in the state of Nuevo Leon.
After his capture, he was transferred to the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge between Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, and Laredo, Texas, where he was deported for being in the country illegally. After being handed over to U.S. authorities, he was arrested for his outstanding charges.
José Manuel “H” was arrested by Pecos police on March 17, 2021, but was released on bail days later. After failing to comply with his legal restrictions and evading trial, he was listed as one of the top 10 most wanted by Texan authorities.
