A Mexican citizen who isn't supposed to be in the U.S. turned up in Sparta.

Alonso Barajas Castorena had been deported, but the 33-year-old was spotted in Sparta on March 3.

Online court records indicate that Barajas Castorena was arrested on cocaine charges 10 years ago in Monroe County, and went missing less than a month after his arrest.

He's now scheduled for a plea hearing next month but now faces two years in federal prison for being an illegal alien, charged with illegal re-entry.

Police in Sparta have helped Immigration and Customs agents in the investigation.
