HIDALGO COUNTY, TX (CBS 4) – Officers detained a Mexican man Wednesday and want to deport him for the fifth time.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers picked up Fidencio Lara-Mares, a Mexican citizen who lives in Edinburg, at the Hidalgo County jail.
“Record checks revealed the defendant was formally removed from the United States to Mexico for the fourth (4th) time on August 30, 2016 via the Laredo, Texas Port of Entry,” according to the criminal complaint against him.
On Jan. 7, 2015, Lara was convicted of being a non-citizen in possession of a firearm and sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.
He’s now charged with illegal re-entry.
Federal Magistrate Judge Peter E. Ormsby ordered Lara held without bond.
Court records don’t list an attorney for Lara, who remains in federal custody.
