TUCSON - A MS-13 gang member from El Salvador was arrested by Tucson Station Border Patrol agents south of Arivaca on Wednesday, April 3.

Agents apprehended 57-year-old Noe Bernal-Portillo shortly after he entered the United States illegally.

A records check found Bernal has numerous felony convictions, including a 1997 conviction for attempted murder in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bernal was transported to the Tucson Station for processing and he will remain in federal custody pending prosecution for re-entry as an aggravated felon.
