CBP Officers at Miami International Airport Arrest Man Wanted for Homicide

Release Date: 
July 8, 2015

MIAMI – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at Miami International Airport apprehended a wanted fugitive arriving from Antigua on Monday. The 27-year-old man had an outstanding warrant for homicide out of New York.

The individual, a U.S. citizen, was identified by CBP after he presented himself for inspection at the airport. During the inspection process, CBP officers determined that the man had an outstanding warrant for homicide.

After confirming the warrant, CBP officers arrested the individual and turned him over to the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) for extradition to New York.

“CBP officers work closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement partners to make sure wanted fugitives face justice,” said Port Director Christopher Maston.

CBP conducts inspection operations and intercepts currency, weapons, prohibited agriculture, and other illicit items. On average, CBP arrests 22 wanted persons a day at U.S. ports of entry nationwide.

CBP welcomes assistance from the community. Report illegal activity by calling 1-800-BE-ALERT.
