DALLAS (AP) - A Mexican man has been returned to Dallas after a yearslong investigation to face charges that he raped two girls.
Police say Jose Adan Rico was linked to two crime scenes with DNA evidence. He was charged in 2009 with two counts of aggravated sexual assault. While out on bond, Rico was deported by immigration authorities who later said they didn't know about the charges.
Police say they obtained a provisional warrant and used informants in Mexico to locate Rico. U.S. marshals were able to help arrest him. They brought him back to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Thursday.
He is being held with no bond at the Dallas County jail. Online records did not list an attorney.
