HIDALGO - A suspect wanted in connection with threats made against the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office is now in custody. That's according to Sheriff Lupe Trevino.
Trevino said Gustavo Cruz Lozano surrendered to Homeland Security Investigations and FBI special agents at the Hidalgo port of entry. It happened around noon. CHANNEL 5 NEWS was at the scene as Lozano was taken away in an ambulance.
Lozano had what appeared to be stab wounds to his neck. We learned he claimed he was attacked in Reynosa. The sheriff suspects the wounds were self-inflicted.
Lozano is now at a local hospital. He'll remain under guard until he can face charges for the threats he's accused of making.
Lozano is one of two men accused of making threats against the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office. Carlos Medina is another suspect still at large. The two cases are not connected.
