A Canadian man was arrested at the Ambassador Bridge on Monday and is facing a sexual conduct charge in Michigan.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers made the arrest after the man, who was holding a FAST card, entered the United States at the Bridge where computer systems alerted officials.

They discovered that the man had an active arrest warrant stemming from an allegation of 4th degree criminal sexual conduct in Davison, Michigan.

Customs officials say the 52-year-old man was hauling a shipment of auto parts and was a FAST, or Fast And Secure Trade card holder.

“Participation in trusted trader programs is a privilege,” said Detroit port director Roderick Blanchard. “FAST card holders are afforded a higher level of trust and any violation will result in immediate removal from the program.”

Officers contacted the Davison Police Department who confirmed the warrant and took custody of the man.

If convicted of the allegations, US Customs officials say the man would be subject to removal proceedings.
