One of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders is behind bars in El Paso after eluding police for several years. News 92 FM’s Brian Shannon has the details of his arrest:
The Texas Department of Public Safety says Juan Alfredo Gandarilla is a high-risk sex offender with a lengthy criminal history, including burglary, assaulting a public servant and a conviction for sexually molesting a 9-year old girl. U. S. Customs and Border Protection agents took Gandarilla into custody outside El Paso at the Bridge of the Americas without incident.
Gandarilla told the agents he was turning himself in to avoid being arrested in Mexico. Gandarilla has been wanted since 2005 for failure to register as a sex offender and parole violation.
He was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender’s list in 2012.
