“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.
