CBP arrests two at Peace Arch border crossing

Two individuals attempting to cross through the Peace Arch port of entry were detained after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers discovered warrants were out for their arrest.

According to a September 15 statement from CBP, a 70-year-old man from Montana was detained as a result of a warrant out of Lake County, Montana on charges of assault with a weapon. Later that day, CBP detained a 48-year-old man from Denver, Colorado for a warrant out of Tumwater, Washington on charges of escaping community custody in Tacoma and assault. The men were transported to Whatcom County Jail.

“Our officers’ vigilance in keeping our communities safe includes the apprehension of felons with outstanding warrants, especially those who have escaped custody,” said area port director Kenneth Williams. “The work we do is vital to protecting our communities and those within them.”
