Felon is arrested at Arizona-California border

YUMA, Ariz. -- A convicted felon from El Salvador has been arrested in southwestern Arizona for being in the country illegally.

U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Yuma Sector say 51-year-old Jose Chicas-Argeta was among five people taken into custody Friday near the Arizona-California border.

They say a records check showed Chicas previously had been convicted of multiple felonies including attempted second-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated robbery and narcotics possession for sale.

Authorities say Chicas was previously removed from the U.S. and now is being processed for prosecution and another deportation.

It was unclear Friday afternoon if Chicas has legal representation yet.
