For whatever reason Amado Benjamin Gomez was leaving the country, the trip got cut short.

Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the 42-year-old Gomez at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on April 12 before he could board a flight to Guatemala City, Guatemala.

Gomez had a warrant for his arrest on a felony sexual assault charge out of Denton County. Border Patrol agents scanned the flight manifest and it flagged Gomez’s name for having an outstanding warrant.

It isn’t known if Gomez was trying to flee the country to escape the warrant. Border Patrol agents found Gomez’s departure flight and made arrangements to contact him before he could board.

Officers found Gomez before he could get in the flight and arrested him at the airport.

Border Patrol agents turned Gomez over to DFW Airport Police where the Denton County Sheriff’s Office will take custody of him for the outstanding warrant.

Customs and Border Protection says it processes 1,069,266 travelers and arrests 72 wanted criminals at U.S. ports of entry on a typical day.
