Asian rapper nabbed for murder
Border protection officers from both the U.S. and Canada worked together to arrest an Asian rapper wanted in New York for attempted murder.

On the night of December 15 Raymond Yu, 23, known professionally as G-Kay, was on the northbound shuttle from Seattle to Vancouver when he was stopped by Canadian Border Services Agency officers. They discovered he was wanted on a U.S. arrest warrant and sent him back south.

Customs and Border Protection officers at the U.S. port of entry determined Yu was wanted by the New York City police department in connection with the shooting of another rapper at a nightclub. He was arrested and transported to Whatcom County Jail pending extradition to New York

Local man in hospital after rollover
Jason Boyer of Blaine was still in St. Joseph Hospital in Blaine at press time Monday afternoon with internal injuries suffered in a one vehicle rollover accident last week. Boyer, who was last seen Tuesday evening about 9:45 p.m., was westbound on Haynie Road and failed to negotiate the curve in trying to turn northbound on Statvolt Road, drove off into the ravine and was trapped for over 12 hours in his 1992 GMC pickup truck. His brother finally spotted him the next morning and alerted Whatcom County Fire District 13 who rescued him. District 13 Chief Jim Rutherford said later that he, “walked along the road and couldn’t see the truck unless you walked down into the ravine a little ways.”
