BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Cameron County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a Houston man wanted on an outstanding warrant.
Victor Manuel De Leon, 27, was taken into custody Sunday at the Veterans International Bridge in Brownsville in connection with a warrant issued by Harris County alleging he was involved in organized crime, according to the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office.

“After further investigation, the warrant was confirmed by a Cameron County dispatch and a deputy took De Leon into custody,” the sheriff’s office said.
De Leon has been placed in the Carrisales Rucker Detention Center and is awaiting extradition, authorities said on Monday.
