Two Fugitives Apprehended: Riverside Sex Crimes and Denver Homicide
IMPERIAL VALLEY COUNTY – Ports-of-entry U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers in the San Diego and Imperial Valley Counties brought in two fugitives over the weekend.
First, at approximately 3:48 p.m. on 01/19/2020, a Mexican citizen and lawful permanent resident (44) entered the port of entry on foot through Otay Mesa. Adan Larios was referred for further inspection by CBP.
On 01/22/2020, CBP announced that Larios had an active felony warrant from Riverside County PD for sex crimes with a minor. He also had a bail set at $1 million. San Diego County Sheriff’s Office is now holding the fugitive who awaits extradition to Riverside, CA.
The next day, near noon, a U.S. citizen drove to the San Ysidro port of entry. The driver of the 2008 BMW X5 was referred for further investigation by the CPB officer conducting inspections.
Eduardo Aguilar (23) was held by CBP officers upon confirmation of an active homicide warrant, with no bail set, from Denver Colorado Sheriff’s Department. On 01/22/2020, CBP announced Aguilar’s transport to San Diego County Jail. He, too, awaits his extradition.
“These cases are just examples of the apprehensions CBP officers catch on a daily basis,” said Pete Flores, Director of Field Operations for CBP in San Diego. “CBP officers are vigilant to stop those who would do harm in our communities at the border, as they attempt to enter the U.S.”
CBP stressed that criminal charges are merely allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
