U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers arrested a man with an active warrant for child rape at the Peace Arch border crossing on May 22.
The 23-year-old suspect was attempting to cross into Canada when his passport triggered a positive match to a warrant issued in King County. Officers fingerprinted the suspect and returned a match. The man was wanted for third degree rape of a child.
“CBP officers at the Blaine ports of entry remain vigilant in intercepting people who are wanted for criminal activity,” said area port director Kenneth Williams. “CBP and the Canada Border Services Agency have an outstanding working relationship and together we ensure individuals face justice for the crimes which they are in accused in our respective countries.”
