CBP Arrests Fugitive
CHAMPLAIN, N.Y. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Champlain Port of Entry arrested a 26-year-old male United States citizen from Moorestown, New Jersey who had an outstanding warrant out of New Jersey.
Yesterday, CBP officers encountered the subject after Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers denied his entry into Canada. During the initial encounter on primary, CBP officers discovered an active National Crime Information Center (NCIC) warrant out of Burlington County Sheriff’s Department, New Jersey for Assault and Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. The warrant was confirmed by CBP officers and subsequently the New York State Police (NYSP) were contacted.
“This is another example that illustrates how our officers work alongside our law enforcement partners to bring these fugitives to justice and help keep our communities safe,” said Area Port Director Steven Bronson.
After CBP processing, officers turned the U.S. citizen over to the NYSP for extradition to New Jersey in order to face warrant charges.
