Sierra Blanca Border Patrol Agents arrest 3 “undocumented non-citizens” armed with stolen guns

SIERRA BLANCA, Texas – Officials with the United States Border Patrol announced Wednesday that their agents found and arrested three “undocumented non-citizens,” armed with firearms they had obtained after burglarizing a ranch house in Hudspeth County.

On Tuesday, June 29th, officials say agents in Sierra Blanca responded to a ranch house that had been burglarized, where weapons were known to have been stolen.

According to officials, the agents arrested the trio and when they performed a search of the migrants, two loaded handguns, ammunition, food, and clothing were found.

“Through extensive training, our Border Patrol Agents are always prepared and ready to respond to various scenarios.  Without hesitation, these agents responded to the ranch house and safely secured the location, the stolen weapons and the undocumented non-citizens,” Big Bend Sector Chief Patrol Agent Sean L. McGoffin stated.

“With the presence of weapons in the wrong hands, this situation could have turned violent; fortunately, our agents were able to control the encounter and bring it to a peaceful resolution.”

Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene and took custody of the subjects for further investigation and potential state charges for Trespassing and Theft of Property.

“The continued and valued collaboration with our law enforcement partners is imperative to keep our communities safe,” Border Patrol officials added.
