HIDALGO, TX— U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Hidalgo International Bridge apprehended Dionisio Perez Campos, a U.S. citizen from Mission, Texas, who had a warrant to arrest associated with child sex crimes.
“CBP’s field operations are always vigilant in locating wanted individuals with outstanding warrants, especially those believed to be involved in heinous crimes of a sexual nature involving children,” said Port Manager Carlos Rodriguez, port from Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas.
On February 4, 2022, the 42-year-old arrived from Mexico at the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge and a CBP agent immediately secured him after discovering Campos was a possible match for an arrest warrant. Once in high school, biometric verification confirmed his identity as well as an active arrest warrant from the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office. Campos had that warrant pending stemming from allegations of an incident in August 2021. He is charged with alleged sex crimes; child touching and indecency/child, two second degree crimes.
A deputy from the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office arrived to pick up Campos and transported him to the county jail.
Criminal charges are only allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty by a court.
