Blaine, Wash - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended a Washington, N.J., man on February 22 who was wanted in Clark County, Nev., for alleged fraud.
Officers arrested Jared Isaacman, 27, upon his arrival to the United States at the Pacific Highway port of entry when a name check revealed that he was the subject of a National Criminal Information Center felony warrant.
"A vital element in our homeland security effort is the apprehension of fugitives from justice," said Area Port Director Gregory Alvarez. "We are proud of our commitment to keep communities safe throughout the United States by continuous vigilance at our nation's borders."
After verification of the warrant for arrest with Clark County officials, Isaacman was immediately taken into custody by CBP officers and transported to the Whatcom County jail for extradition to Nevada.
NCIC is the abbreviation for National Criminal Information Center, which is a centralized automated database designed to share information among law enforcement agencies. These warrants are for a wide range of offense including money laundering, robbery, narcotics distribution, sexual abuse of children, violation of protection orders, fraud, failure to appear, larceny and military desertion.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
