Denver, Colo. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Denver International Airport apprehended United States citizen, Seif-Eddine Bendiff, arriving from London, England on January 26. The passenger was the subject of a warrant for dangerous drugs issued by Arapahoe County, Colo.
After confirming the subject's identity and warrant, CBP officers remanded the subject to the custody of the Denver Police Department to effect extradition.
"The continued cooperation between CBP and local and state law enforcement agencies as a whole demonstrates how CBP continues to protect America's borders," said LaShanda Jones, port director for Denver, Colo.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
