CBP Officers at Peace Bridge Arrest Male for False Identity

Release Date: 
January 31, 2012

BUFFALO, N.Y.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Field Operations announced the apprehension and arrest of an individual attempting entry into the United States under an assumed identity.

Adama Conde, a 36 year-year-old male citizen of Guinea, was encountered by CBP Officers at the Peace Bridge on January 25th aboard a Greyhound bus. Mr. Conde presented the U.S, passport of a 28-year-old male born in Georgia bearing Conde's photo. CBP Officers later determined that the Guinean citizen used the false identity as a cover due to his being in deportation proceedings from the United States.

Mr. Conde was arraigned in federal court on January 31, and is currently facing charges of False Claim to US Citizenship and Misuse of a Passport.
