DEL RIO, TEXAS – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Del Rio Port of Entry this week apprehended a West Texas man wanted on an outstanding warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14. The apprehension occurred on Sept. 29, 2011 at Del Rio International Bridge . A CBP officer referred a 1998 Cadillac carrying passenger Sergio Gool, a 36-year-old male Mexican citizen from Midland , Texas for a secondary examination. During the examination, CBP officers verified Gool’s identity and confirmed he had an outstanding state warrant from Comal County , New Braunfels , Texas for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14. After confirming the warrant was active, CBP officers turned Gool over to the custody of Val Verde County sheriff’s deputies for transport to a local jail pending extradition proceedings.
“Apprehending persons wanted on outstanding warrants, particularly those of a sexually violent nature involving children, underscores the vital role CBP officers at the Del Rio Port of Entry play in keeping our border communities safe and secure,” said Michael Perez, CBP Port Director, Del Rio .
