CBP Officers Arrest Wanted Sex Offender

Release Date: 
December 2, 2013

ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y.  Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announce the arrest of a wanted sex offender.

On Dec. 1, CBP officers working at the Alexandria Bay port of entry encountered 46-year-old Jon Eaton, a citizen of the United States and resident of Holland Patent, N.Y.

CBP officers were alerted to an active warrant for Eaton when he returned from visiting family in Ontario.

Eaton was found to be wanted in Broward County for failure to report as a sex offender. Once CBP officers verified the warrant and confirmed extradition to Florida, Eaton was arrested by CBP and subsequently turned over to the custody of the New York State Police.

CBP is responsible for securing our borders while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel into and out of the United States.  We also assist and support the law enforcement efforts of our state, local, tribal, federal and international partners on both sides of the border, as we carry out our traditional border-related responsibilities. We will continue to collaborate, and actively share intelligence and information as we work together to ensure the security of our mutually shared border and the safety of our communities.
