Miami - On May 8, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Miami International Airport arrested a 66-year-old man wanted on child molestation charges. The man, a U.S. citizen, had an active warrant for illicit sexual conduct with a child. He was attempting to board a flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti when members of the CBP outbound team apprehended him.
After CBP officers intercepted the subject on the active warrant, he was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigation agents for further enforcement and prosecution before the U.S. Southern District Court of Florida.
"On a daily basis, CBP officers utilize a number of law enforcement techniques, technology and training to protect our country and to ensure the safety and security of the United States public," said Gregory McCann, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Director of Field Operations for the Miami Field Office.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
