U.S Customs and Border Protection have seized 14 counterfeit identification and credit cards, and barred two Canadians who tried to bring them over the Ambassador Bridge from entering the United States.

Officials say that on July 17, 2015, officers conducting an inspection of two Canadian citizens, a 22 year-old male resident of Toronto and a 24-year-old female who resides in Brampton, discovered 14 identification and credit cards that appeared to be counterfeit. These cards included similar looking Canadian Naturalization Cards, Ontario Driver’s License and Social Insurance Cards.

All of the documents and credit cards were seized and turned over to ICE Homeland Security Investigations pending further investigation.

“CBP remains ever vigilant in intercepting those travelers that our laws identify as needing further scrutiny,” said David Beculheimer, Acting Port Director. “That vigilance resulted in the prevention of fraudulent documents being used to possibly cross the border.”

Both Canadians were found to be inadmissible to the United States and allowed to withdraw their application for admission and return to Canada.
