Man Wanted for Felony Battery in Florida Nabbed by CBP

Release Date: 
January 6, 2014

Lewiston, N.Y. Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announce the arrest of a wanted male for felony battery.

On Jan. 5, CBP officers working at the Lewiston Bridge border crossing encountered 26-year-old Richard Hanes, a citizen of the Canada and resident of Peterborough, Ontario.

CBP officers were alerted to an active warrant for Hanes when he made application for admission to the United States.

Hanes was found to be wanted in Florida for felony battery since 2011 when he failed to appear after posting a $10,000 bond. Once CBP officers verified the warrant and confirmed extradition to Florida, Hanes was arrested by CBP and subsequently turned over to the custody of the New York State Police.
