Illegal immigrant arrested on illegal entry, firearm possession
A house raid on an illegal immigrant who resided on Norbert Street in Bridge City also netted a firearm possession charge.
Officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the FBI, and the Port Arthur and Bridge City Police Departments’ Narcotic Divisions served a federal warrant on Luis Becerra for illegal entry into the United States, according to information from the Port Arthur Police Department. He was deported out of the country February 12 and returned to the U.S. 15 days later.
Bridge City Police Chief Paul Davis said the BCPD didn’t participate in the raid.
During the search of his house, two handguns were found. Becerra said he was holding them for a friend. Illegal possession of a firearm were also added to the charges.
