LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

24-year-old Jared Gonzalez-Borjorquez was detained at McCarran Airport on Dec. 28, 2012 for allegedly trying to pass off a fake passport and visa. It wasn't his first time.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers said Gonzalez-Borjorquez was traveling with a counterfeit Mexican passport and fraudulent non-immigrant visa when he arrived at the airport from Guadalajara.

When he attempted to apply for admission to the United States, officers noted his passport and visa lacked the security features found on genuine documents.

Gonzalez-Borjorquez was arrested and charged with illegal re-entry, use of a false passport and fraud and misuse of visas, permits and other documents.

It turns out Gonzalez-Borjorquez had been deported in Nov. 2012 after numerous attempts to re-enter the U.S. illegally.

"CBP officers are well trained in detecting fraudulent documents and apprehending imposters. This is one example of their diligence and vigilance," said Todd C. Owen, CBP Director of Field Operations in Los Angeles.

Gonzalez-Borjorquez made his first court appearance on Jan. 2. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 16.
