A Border Patrol agent working at the Ajo Border crossing station in Pima County, AZ was taken into custody two weeks ago on a fugitive warrant issued for suspicion of lewd acts with a minor. The alleged offense took place in Imperial County, CA in 2013.

29-year-old Supervisory Agent Kyle Mrofka was detained by Pima County Sheriff’s Deputies on September 29. He remains in Pima County jail without bond awaiting extradition to Imperial County, CA where he is charged with two counts of lewd acts for alleged sexual contact with a child age 14 or 15 when he was at least 10 years older. The identity of the victim is being withheld.

The Tucson Sector public affairs office issued a statement announcing that Mrofka, a 9-year employee of the federal border enforcement agency, has been put on indefinite unpaid suspension awaiting the outcome of the investigation.

Overnight between March 27 and March 28, several homeowners in the Dover Shores area of Newport Beach reported that someone had attempted to vandalize and burglarize their homes. Newport Beach spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella said, “In each of these cases, an unknown suspect had used brute force, possibly a kick, to force open the front door to the residence.”

Although nothing was taken in those incidents, witnesses had reported to the police that they had seen a white man with a muscular build, along with an SUV near the scene of two of the crimes around the same time.

The next night, between the hours of 7 and 10 p.m. another home in the Newport Beach area was burglarized. “The door was forced open in the same manner as the other homes,” Manzella said. The resident was not home at the time of the crime. According to Manzella, watches and several items of jewelry were stolen.
