BUFFALO, N.Y.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the arrest of a Canadian citizen who was found to be in possession of child pornography.
On January 26, CBP officers working at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo, N.Y. encountered 61-year-old Terence Keleher, a Canadian citizen from Guelph, Canada. Keleher indicated that he was destined to visit a friend he met online, but was unable to provide any specific information about the friend or his destination. Due to his inability to provide specific travel information, Keleher was referred to secondary for further inspection.
During the secondary inspection, Keleher stated that he intended to stay in the United States until Monday and then return back to Canada. The inspection revealed that Keleher was in possession of suspected child pornography.
Keleher was subsequently arrested by CBP and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigation agents and faces federal for transportation of child pornography.
