An accused drug dealer who was deported last year is once again facing drug charges after illegally returning to the U.S.
The Wichita Eagle reports that 28-year-old Raul Valenzuela-Arce was charged in U.S. District Court in Topeka.
He is accused of distributing methamphetamine.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says Valenzuela-Arce was arrested in March 2019 in Topeka on state drug and gun charges.
The KBI says Valenzuela-Arce agreed while jailed to become a KBI informant.
In return, charges against him would be dismissed.
Instead of helping police, Valenzuela-Arce allegedly returned to committing drug crimes.
Court filings show he was deported to Mexico in November.
Investigators said they found out that Valenzuela-Arce was back in Topeka on July 22, and he was arrested again.
