BROWNSVILLE, Texas — On Wednesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations officers removed a Mexican national wanted for financial crimes in her home country.

30-year-old Maria Guadalupe Chavero-Jimenez is accused of taking money from Banco Santander. According the press release, Mexican authorities in 2016 and bank officials reported a total of $1.6 million pesos ($85,000 USD) had been taken from a bank vault.

The bank launched an internal investigation and discovered Chavero-Jimenez, who had access to the vault, had allegedly taken the money.

Chavero-Jimenez was encountered by Corpus Christi Police Department during a minor traffic violation on Jan. 22. Shortly after her arrest, Chavero-Jimenez was turned over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the Rio Grande Valley. ICE officers received confirmation that Chavero-Jimenez had an active arrest warrant in Mexico for financial crimes.

The press release said that on May 4, an immigration judge issued her a final order of removal.
