A man accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15 year-old girl is behind bars in Brownsville after authorities spent months searching for him.
The case began in March 2009 when officers issued an arrest warrant for Manuel Maldonado. Officers in Friendswood stopped him for a traffic violation and that's when a computer check revealed he was wanted by Brownsville police. The Friendswood officer arrested Maldonado and booked him into the Galveston county jail and Brownsville police then returned Maldonado to the Cameron county jail.
