A Mexican citizen who has been arrested by U.S. border agents at least nine times dating back to 2000 has been arrested for a 10th time.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the Great Lakes region revealed Thursday that Sergio Nunez-Barrera, a previously deported convicted felon, was arrested Tuesday for an outstanding warrant on burglary charges by the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Office.

Agents were contacted by the Lapeer Police Department to help identify a suspect as part of an ongoing investigation, according to CBP.

When border agents questioned the man, he reportedly admitted that he had crossed into the U.S. illegally from Mexico in 2014.

The man was identified as Sergio Nunez-Barrera, from Mexico, and it was determined that he had been arrested by CBP nine times dating back nearly two decades.

Nunez-Barrera, whose age was not released, was convicted of improper entry by alien in September 2012 and sentenced to 30 days incarceration.
