(Newsroom America) -- A federal grand jury in El Paso has returned an indictment charging 53-year-old Victor Manuel Solis with making a false statement to El Paso FBI agents about the search for his fugitive son, former Los Angeles Police officer Henry Solis.
The indictment alleges that on March 16, 2015, Victor Solis willfully attempted to prevent law enforcement from locating Henry Solis by representing to FBI agents that he, alone, crossed into Mexico on March 14, 2015.
Photographs released by the FBI show that Victor Solis, accompanied by Henry Solis, crossed into Juarez, Mexico, from El Paso at the Paso Del Norte Port of Entry on March 14, 2015.
Upon conviction, Victor Solis faces up to five years in federal prison and a maximum $250,000 fine.
Victor Solis remains in federal custody while Henry Solis remains a fugitive from justice.
Authorities are seeking to arrest Henry Solis for his alleged involvement in a homicide in Pomona, CA, last month.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Henry Solis.
