A 40-year-old U.S. citizen, who is a wanted sex offender and known gang member, was captured by Border Patrol agents after trying to re-enter Texas illegally.
John Albert Gover was one of the Texas Department of Public Safety’s 10 Most Wanted sex offenders, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Gover is accused of trying to bypass inspection by crossing the Rio Grande River. He was apprehended by Eagle Pass Station agents.
In 2009, Gover was convicted of molesting a 12-year-old girl in Bexar County in Texas. He served four years in prison.
Soon after his release, he was arrested in San Antonio for failing to register as a sex offender.
