LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Federal prosecutors have asked that a Garza County prison guard not be allowed to bond out of jail because they're concerned he is a flight risk.
On Thursday, federal agents arrested Jose Luis Ramirez-Pizarro at the Dalby Correctional Facility in Post on charges related to a passport application.
He stands indicted for false representation of United States citizenship and false statement in application for passport that allegedly happened in 2007.
Family members, however, say he is an American citizen. Federal prosecutors asked on Friday morning to postpone his detention hearing for ten days.
Ramirez-Pizarro is being held at the Lubbock County Jail.
