CALEXICO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Border Patrol agents arrested a gang member 18 miles east of the Calexico Port of Entry early Monday morning.

Agents say they saw a man illegally entering the United States close to 1 a.m.

After arresting the man, agents took him into the El Centro Sector Rally point for screening.

Record checks revealed the 38-year-old man from Mexico as an admitted Paisas gang member who previously had a conviction for drug offenses, including transportation, sales, and possession.

He was sentenced to nine years in prison for his crimes.

He was removed from the U.S. in August 2008.
