Release Date: 
January 28, 2016

BLAINE, Wash. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations officers at the Pacific Highway Port of Entry took into custody a man wanted in Everett, Washington, for alleged dangerous drugs. The man was turned over to CBP by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers on January 16.

CBP officers arrested Rudolph Janss, 23, when a name check revealed that he was the subject of a National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) warrant for dangerous drugs.

“Our officers’ vigilance in keeping our community safe includes the apprehension of felons with outstanding warrants as they attempt to cross the border,” said Acting Area Port Director Kenneth L. Williams. “We’re proud of our partnership with CBSA in this collaborative effort.”

After the outstanding warrant for arrest was verified with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Janss was turned over to the Washington State Patrol.

NCIC is a centralized automated database designed to share information among law enforcement agencies including outstanding warrants for a wide range of offenses. Based on information from NCIC, CBP officers on the U.S./Canadian border have made previous arrests of individuals wanted for homicide, escape, money laundering, robbery, narcotics distribution, sexual child abuse, fraud, larceny, and military desertion.
