DETROIT- U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Fort Street Cargo Facility arrested a 52 year old Canadian citizen wanted in Davison, Michigan for 4th degree criminal sexual conduct.
On Monday October 14, a 52-year old Canadian citizen and FAST (Free and Secure Trade) card holder entered the U.S. hauling a shipment of auto parts. Database queries resulted in the discovery of an active warrant for his arrest.
"Participation in trusted trader programs is a privilege." said Roderick Blanchard, Port Director in Detroit. "FAST card holders are afforded a higher level of trust and any violation will result in immediate removal from the program.”
CBP Officers contacted the Davison Police Department who confirmed the warrant and took custody of the man where he will face the pending charges.
If convicted of the offenses the man would be subject to removal proceedings. All defendants in criminal proceedings enjoy the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in court proceedings.
