Release Date: January 12, 2021

LAREDO, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Laredo Port of Entry detained a wanted man with an outstanding warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child out of Houston, Texas.

“The sexual abuse of a child is a crime of great magnitude,” said Port Director Eugene Crawford, Laredo Port of Entry. “CBP collaborates with agencies throughout the nation to bring those charged with committing these heinous acts to justice.”

CBP officers escort a wanted person at a U.S. port of entry.

The fugitive apprehension occurred on Sunday, January 10th, 2021 at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge. A CBP officer processing vehicle traffic arriving from Mexico, referred Noe Mauricio Delgado, a 35-year-old male El Salvador citizen, for a secondary inspection.

After escorting the passenger to secondary, subsequent biometric verification through law enforcement databases confirmed that the subject had an outstanding warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age of 14, a 1st degree felony, pursued by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Houston, Texas. The warrant was confirmed to be active. CBP officers transported the wanted fugitive to Webb County Jail in Laredo, Texas to await criminal proceedings. Criminal charges are merely allegations.

Defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
