CBP Officers at Miami International Arrest Subject Wanted for Bank Robbery
Miami — Customs and Border Protection officers at the Miami International Airport today arrested a fugitive upon his arrival into the U.S. from Costa Rica. The subject, Juan David Cardona, had an outstanding federal warrant for his arrest related to a federal bank robbery charge in Southern Florida.
Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation accompanied CBP officers to the gate upon arrival of the aircraft, where the subject was taken into custody. The subject will be processed by CBP and turned over to the FBI for federal prosecution.
CBP is responsible for securing U.S. borders while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel into and out of the U.S.
“CBP takes pride in the identification and apprehension of arriving and departing wanted persons at our international ports of entry, and returning them to our law enforcement partners to face justice,” said Port Director Roland Suliveras. “This is a perfect example of how the CBP mission enforces the law on behalf of many other agencies and ensures the safety of the American public.”
