An accused drug dealer who was deported last year is once again facing drug charges after illegally returning to the U.S. 
Raul Valenzuela-Arce, 26, was charged in U.S. District Court in Topeka. He is accused of distributing methamphetamine. An affidavit from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation says Valenzuela-Arce was arrested in March 2019 in Topeka on state drug and gun charges. 

The affidavit says Valenzuela-Arce agreed while jailed to become a KBI informant. But instead of helping police, Valenzuela-Arce allegedly returned to committing drug crimes. Court filings show he was deported to Mexico in November, but was caught in Topeka in July.
