BLAINE, Wash. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations at the Peace Arch Port of Entry turned over to Whatcom County Sheriff’s deputies, a Colorado man wanted on a probation violation.

CBP accepted custody from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Monday night of the 26-year-old Greeley native who had a pair of extraditable warrants revealed in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).

“The capture of this individual highlights the cooperation between local law enforcement, CBSA and CBP,” said Area Port Director Kenneth L Williams. “I commend officers from both countries for their solid commitment and collaborative efforts to securing our nations.”

After confirmation of the warrants from the Colorado Department of Corrections, Whatcom County Sheriff’s deputies took the man into custody and transported him to their jail in Bellingham to await extradition.

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.
