Pedophile wanted in the USA was arrested by the GESI in Mexicali

An American citizen, wanted in the US for pedophilia and considered extremely dangerous, was arrested in Mexicali by agents from the State Investigations Guard (GESI in Spanish), after an intense intelligence labor and information exchange between Mexican and American authorities.

Joseph Patrick, 68 years old, had crossed to Mexicali fleeing the justice action for having sexually abused of young boys on US soil, he is from Chicago, Illinois and was hiding in the Lomas de Abasolo section, on the city´s East side outskirts according to intelligence reports, and GESI officers spotted him walking on Haza Avenue.

The agents saw him strolling on the sidewalk and checked if he coincided with the pedophile´s description they had, and as soon as they verified it, they intervened him and arrested him, now he´s about to be extradited to the USA so he may face the consequences of his acts against children.  

Collaboration and joint effort between Mexico and USA law enforcement agencies, as well as Mexico´s National Immigration Institute made the arrest and future extradition and conviction possible, just one more result of the close collaboration between both countries authorities.
