Man wanted in Nevada arrested at Arizona border

Posted: Updated:

SAN LUIS, Ariz. (AP) - A man wanted on a warrant for attempted murder in Nevada has been arrested at the southern Arizona border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say 20-year-old Ever Geovany Vivar Jr. was taken into custody Monday to the San Luis Port of Entry.

CBP officers referred Vivar for additional questioning when he attempted to enter Arizona through the pedestrian area.

After officers ran a routine records check and discovered an active arrest warrant out of Reno, Vivar was turned over to the Yuma County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities didn't immediately provide additional information on the Nevada warrant Tuesday and they didn't know whether Vivar has a lawyer yet.
