William Miller, 48, of Pittsburgh, was scheduled to board a flight to Mexico.  CBP officers determined Miller to be the subject of an arrest warrant obtained by the Pittsburgh Police Department for an accident involving death or injury and not being properly licensed.  CBP officers verified the validity of the warrant and confirmed extradition.  CBP officers arrested Miller and turned him over to Allegheny County Police for extradition.  

“CBP remains ever vigilant in intercepting those travelers that our laws identify as needing further scrutiny,” said Stephen Collins, Acting CBP Port Director for the Port of Pittsburgh.

CBP conducts inspection operations and intercepts currency, weapons, prohibited agriculture products and other illicit items, and on average arrests 21 wanted persons a day at U.S. Ports of entry nationwide.

Travelers are encouraged to visit CBP’s Travel section to learn rules governing travel to and from the U.S.

Criminal charges are merely allegations.  Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
