SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tom Larson, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Honduran national was indicted by a federal grand jury today for illegally reentering the United States.

Luis Arnold Lopez-Lara, 25, a citizen of Honduras residing in Brookline, Mo., was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo.

Today’s indictment alleges that Lopez-Lara entered the United States without permission after having been deported on Feb. 16, 2010. Lopez-Lara was found in Greene County, Mo., on April 17, 2017.

Larson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt.
