A Seminole man wanted for sexual assault of a child a year and a half ago is behind bars in Gaines County.
According to the Gaines County Sheriff's Office, 21 year old Jesus Andres Mendoza was arrested last week trying to cross the border into Mexico.
Mendoza was warranted on a warrant for sexually assaulting a Seminole girl back in June of 2005.
Authorities had been on his trail since November, but never caught up to him until U.S. Customs officials nabbed him at the border.
He remains in the Gaines County jail on a 500-thousand dollar bond.
