Police Arrest Mexican National in Abduction of Florida Boy Who Escaped
Fox News

BRADENTON, Fla. — Authorities arrested the man they believe abducted 13-year-old Clay Moore from a bus stop last month and left him tied up in the woods, officials said Wednesday.

Vicente Ignacio Beltran-Moreno, 22, agreed to voluntarily return from his native Mexico after several days of negotiations, Manatee County Sheriff Charlie Wells said.

Beltran-Moreno was arrested in Texas Wednesday morning at the U.S.-Mexico border and extradition proceedings were under way to get him back to Florida.

"We pretty much told him we weren't going to give up," sheriff's Maj. Connie Shingledecker said. She said they convinced him he would be better off in a U.S. prison, close to his girlfriend and two children, than incarcerated in Mexico.

Clay was grabbed Feb. 25 while waiting at his school bus stop in Parrish. The gunman drove off with him in a red pickup truck, then left him tied up in the woods about 20 miles away. The boy's parents have said he used a safety pin to pick apart the duct tape that held his wrists and then freed himself.

Beltran-Moreno became a suspect after investigators took an artist's sketch to a migrant worker camps east of Bradenton.

Wild Thing's comment......

Note that the phrase "illegal alien" is not used once in the coverage! What cowards! And what the heck..... they say...."Mexican National" in the actual headline of the story with the link........ They make it sound like a diplomat. Good grief! He is an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT.

I guess Vicente Ignacio Beltran-Moreno will become a GUEST WORKER in a few days, start his own business with the no-payback loan he gets from our govt. and live the american dream quite a few actual citizens never see.

This article suggests that the sheriff made a deal with the illegal alien. The real hero was Clay Moore and NOT the sheriff as the article indicates.

Mexican National? How stupid does that sound?
Could I then say that I'm a Precolonial Welsh, Irish, German, Spanish, Cherokee American National?
He's here illegally and he created a crime. He's a criminal.
And let's stop using Undocumented Citizen, too--they aren't citizens of this nation.
Thank God they boy escaped.
The southern areas have got to stop the bleeding over to us. I'm tired of seeing their riff-raff, who could be disease ridden and have ties to terrorist or criminal aspects just streaming across the border and us not be able to do anything about it.

What a incredible kid!

Mexican National - phhhttt!

Isn't it great that we take care of all of Mexico's problems for them? This has to stop.

I hope they put him in the general population in prison.

Even Fox news calls him an Mexican National- he is an Illegal Alien.

As far as I am concerned a Mexican National is someone who normally lives in Meh-hee-co and is here with a Visa visiting and will soon return of his own free will.

But no he was/is here illegally, living here illegally, breaking the law, when he might get caught he flees to mexico to avoid prosecution.

And he bred two kids who will be his passport. I am surprised Mexico extradited him. Many times they almost honor THEIR citizens who commit crimes while ILLEGALLY in the US, then escape back home to Mexico.

Need I say again, piss-poor and dishonest leadership in our government is to blame for this influx of illegals and the problems they create.
