Lone Star Fugitive Task Force's Long Arm Snags Alleged Sex Offender in Mexico

LSFTFEl Paso, TX – Saturday, January 5, 2012, Guillermo Ulloa, 33 years old, of Maricopa County Arizona was deported from Mexico by Mexican law enforcement personnel and was taken into custody by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF). Ulloa, wanted on 11 felony counts for sexual exploitation of a child by Maricopa County, was living in Juarez, Mexico without any legal status. Ulloa was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility and is pending extradition proceedings back to Arizona.

On March 30, 2006, Ulloa was arrested by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and 1 count of luring a child for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Ulloa was released on bond for these charges and fled to Juarez, Mexico. Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office learned of Ulloa’s absence and warrants for bond violation for the listed charges were issued on February 26, 2007. The LSFTF received information from a confidential source about a person living in Juarez, Mexico with his wife and infant child who the confidential source believed was a fugitive from Arizona. LSFTF personnel conducted a detailed investigation and learned of Ulloa’s outstanding warrants. On Saturday at approximately 6:30 p.m. Ulloa was deported from Mexico to the United States at the Paso Del Norte Port of Entry in El Paso, Texas.

Robert Almonte, the United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, said “the LSFTF remains committed to the apprehension of fugitives regardless of where they hide.”
