Pembina, North Dakota - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers apprehended a Brandon, Manitoba man on June 10 who was wanted for larceny.
At approximately 6 p.m., CBP officers were conducting primary inspections when they came in contact with Darrin Stewart, a 44-year-old man identified as a Canadian citizen.
Officers discovered that Stewart had an outstanding warrant out of Winfield, Kansas. The warrant was discovered while conducting routine queries in the National Criminal Information Center database.
Mr. Stewart was arrested and turned over to the Pembina County Sheriffs Office, where he is awaiting extradition to Kansas.
"The vigilance of our CBP officers here results in safer local communities throughout the United States," said Mary Delaquis, Pembina area port director. "The apprehension of individuals with outstanding warrants attempting to enter the U.S. at our ports of entry is a critical element of our security efforts."
