CBP Arrests Man on Pennsylvania Child Porn Warrant

Release Date: 
June 28, 2013

BALTIMORE—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers arrested William Charles Pyle on an outstanding arrest warrant from York, Pa., on child pornography charges after Pyle arrived Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport from Bermuda Thursday.

CBP officers confirmed that the warrant for Pyle, 60, remained active and then confirmed that Pyle was the wanted subject. Officers turned him over to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Pyle had been living in Bermuda and previously resided in York.

CBP vets passenger manifests while international flights are inbound to the United States and identifies passengers who may require additional scrutiny, including those with outstanding arrest warrants. CBP officers at the Port of Baltimore, which includes the airport and seaport, recorded 44 arrests during fiscal year 2012.

"Customs and Border Protection employees take very seriously our role as federal law enforcement officers, including returning wanted fugitives to justice," said Ricardo Scheller, CBP port director for the Port of Baltimore.

CBP conducts inspection operations on arriving and departing international flights, and intercepts currency, weapons, prohibited agriculture products or other illicit items.
