CBP Arrests Wanted Fugitive In Detroit

Release Date: 
March 17, 2016

DETROIT- U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel intercepted a Canadian female citizen traveling to Canada on a Greyhound bus. The subject had been living in the U.S. and was wanted in connection to a vehicular homicide warrant from Baltimore, Md.

 

Traffic at Detroit-Windsor Tunnel

On March 14, CBP officers conducting outbound inspections at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel encountered a Canadian female passenger, age 24, on a Toronto-bound Greyhound bus. Officers questioned the subject about her plans and she stated she was traveling to Ottawa, Ontario, to renew her Canadian passport. A systems check discovered an active warrant for fleeing the scene of an accident causing death from Baltimore County, Md. The traveler was arrested and taken into custody.

 

 “CBP officers intercept more wanted persons than any other law enforcement agency,” said Detroit Port Director Roderick Blanchard. “This arrest is an example of the dedication CBP Officers possess to take wanted criminals off our streets.”

 The subject will face extradition to Maryland to answer charges in the warrant.
