BALTIMORE — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers arrested a Virginia man Sunday at the Baltimore Cruise Terminal who was wanted in Portsmouth, Virginia on five felony charges.

“This arrest illustrates the unique border security authority that Customs and Border Protection contributes to help our law enforcement partners bring dangerous fugitives to justice.  Capturing wanted persons at our nation’s ports of entry is one way in which CBP helps to keep our communities safe,” said Casey Durst, CBP’s Director of the Baltimore Field Office.

CBP officers screen both foreign visitors and U.S. citizens arriving and departing the United States and search for wanted persons, narcotics, unreported currency, weapons, counterfeit consumer goods, prohibited agriculture, and other illicit products to assure that global tourism remains safe and strong. 

On a typical day, CBP officers arrest 21 wanted persons at our nation’s 328 ports of entry across the United States. Learn about what else CBP accomplished during "A Typical Day."

CBP's border security mission is led at ports of entry by CBP officers from the Office of Field Operations.  Please visit CBP Ports of Entry to learn more about how CBP’s Office of Field Operations secures our nation’s borders.
