During a secondary inspection, officers discovered Jacques Tshidibi had an active Illinois arrest warrant. The Champaign County Sheriff’s Department confirmed the warrant, and New York State Police responded to the border to take custody of the subject.

“Our CBP officers remain vigilant in their efforts to intercept wanted individuals and support our law enforcement partners,” said Area Port Director Timothy Walker. “This subject is now off the streets making the community a safer place.”

The subject was taken to the Jefferson County jail where he will await extradition to Illinois.

The National Crime Information Center is a centralized automated database designed to share information among law enforcement agencies including outstanding warrants for a wide range of offenses. Based on information from NCIC, CBP officers have made previous arrests of individuals wanted for homicide, escape, money laundering, robbery, narcotics distribution, sexual child abuse, fraud, larceny, and military desertion.
