PORT CLINTON, OH (WTOL) -

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Sandusky Bay Station in Port Clinton have arrested a previously removed Mexican citizen and admitted gang member.

The man, 29-year-old Marcos Gutierrez-Sanchez, was encountered by Ohio State Highway Patrol during a traffic stop near Fremont on Aug. 29. U.S. Border Patrol agents assisted in interviewing Gutierrez who was a passenger in the vehicle, who admitted to being from Mexico and not possessing U.S.-issued immigration documents allowing him to be or remain in the United States.

Agents arrested him and transported him to the Sandusky Bay Station for processing.

Once there, record checks revealed that the man had been previously deported in 2008 and 2012, along with his association with the Sureños. During questioning, the man confirmed his gang affiliation. Record checks also revealed two prior felony convictions, one of which was a conviction for smuggling into a detention facility.

“This arrest illustrates the hard work our agents perform with our law enforcement partners to remove criminal aliens from our communities and make those places safer,” said Detroit Sector Chief Patrol Agent Douglas Harrison.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio has accepted prosecution on Gutierrez for violation of 8 USC 1326(b)(2) Unlawful Reentry after Removal of an Aggravated Felon.

To report suspicious activity to the U.S. Border Patrol, contact Detroit Sector at 800-537-3220.
