A Mexican man deported in 2011 after being convicted in Georgia of making harassing telephone calls has been arrested in southern Arizona.

Border Patrol officials say 28-year-old Fernando Alberto Santoyo-Martinez now faces federal criminal charges for re-entry.

Agents in the Tucson Sector arrested the alleged gang member Sunday east of Douglas for illegally entering the United States.

They say Santoyo-Martinez was convicted for the harassing calls in Clayton County, Georgia and has multiple gang-related tattoos on his body.
