A top ten dangerous criminal in the “Se Busca” initiative has been caught.
Border patrol agents in Rio Grande City have arrested Andres “El Pause” Martinez-Granados, target number eight.
He’s the first target arrested in the U.S.
Officials tell us Martinez-Granados is a narcotics smuggler for the Miguel Aleman Plaza located south of Roma.
He’s reportedly known for his aggressive and dangerous driving tactics when attempting to avoid authorities.
He will be federally prosecuted for illegal re-entry into the U.S. before being extradited to the Starr County Sheriff’s Office.
Since the initiative launched, seven of the ten RGV targets have been arrested.
