CBP Arrests Man with Loaded Firearm
ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), officers at the Alexandria Bay Port of Entry arrested a 62-year-old man from Stevensville, Michigan who was in possession of a loaded firearm and personal use marijuana.
On September 27, CBP officers encountered a U.S. citizen at the Alexandria Bay Port of Entry who was referred for further secondary questioning to check his story and travel agenda. During this secondary processing, the subject admitted to having a loaded Ruger LCP .38 caliber handgun and some personal use marijuana in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle found the loaded Ruger handgun with 12 additional rounds of ammunition in the magazine and 7.3 grams of marijuana, both in the same bag.
CBP officers arrested the individual then turned him and all evidence over to the New York State Police.
“This arrest is a great example of the tireless efforts of CBP’s commitment to work alongside our law enforcement partners to enforce all laws and keep our communities safe,” said Timothy Walker, Area Port Director of the Alexandria Bay Port of Entry.
