CBP Arrests Man Wanted For Sex Crimes

Release Date: 
September 4, 2013

DETROIT--On August 29, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel port of entry arrested a man on an outstanding warrant after he was refused entry into Canada by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

Checks of national databases along with fingerprints confirmed Allen Rosenthal, a United States citizen, was a positive match to records for nationwide extradition out of Fairfax, Virginia for obscene communication and proposing sex by computer with a child.

"This latest arrest is another prime example of U.S. Customs and Border Protection collaborating with our law enforcement partners to ensure the safety and security in our respective communities." said Roderick Blanchard, CBP port director in Detroit.

Rosenthal was turned over to Wayne County Sheriff's Department pending extradition to Virginia.
