Fugitive Turned Over to CBP at the Peace Arch Port of Entry

Release Date: 
June 5, 2015

BLAINE, Wash. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations officers at the Peace Arch Port of Entry took into custody a man wanted in Colorado for alleged parole violation and contempt of court. The man was turned over to them by Canada Border Services Agency officers on June 3.

CBP officers arrested Michael Buckley, 40, when a name check revealed he was the subject of two National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) warrants for contempt of court and parole violation following his conviction of sexual exploitation of a minor – exhibition of a minor.

“This arrest is another example of the close and professional working relationships among the northern border law enforcement agencies in Washington and British Columbia,” said Acting Area Port Director Terry Schulze. “CBP is proud of this cooperative work which enables us to perform our security mission to protect the American homeland.”

After the outstanding warrants for arrest were verified with the Colorado Department of Corrections, Buckley was turned over to the United States Marshals Service for extradition back to Colorado.

NCIC is a centralized automated database designed to share information among law enforcement agencies including outstanding warrants for a wide range of offenses. 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, based on information from NCIC.
