A Border Patrol All-Terrain Vehicle Unit was immediately deployed to the area and at about 6 p.m. agents following the trail of footprints came upon 6 Mexican Nationals hiding in the desert brush. All six male subjects admitted to being Mexican Nationals without any legal immigration documents.
The subjects were transported to the Deming Border Patrol Station where they were checked in a criminal database. The check found an active criminal warrant for one of the men… 33-year old Jesus Jimenez-Franco, from Mexico, for “Failure to Appear” in Minden, Nevada. Jimenez-Franco was charged with “Sexual Assault-of-a-Minor”, but never faced this criminal charge.
Jimenez-Franco is currently being held at the Luna County Detention Center awaiting court proceedings for his immigration violation before he is extradited to Nevada for the charge of sexual assault of a minor.
