DETROIT—On Friday September 6, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel arrested a man wanted in Kansas in connection with a homicide, after he was refused entry into Canada by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The man, a United States citizen, possessed and presented to CBSA a valid Arkansas driver's license in the name of Raymond Williams. CBSA refused entry to Williams based on immigration reasons. Upon his return to the U.S., CBP Officers conducted fingerprint checks and received a positive match for a Lee Williams, wanted in Kansas in connection to a homicide in Wyandotte County, Kan.
