October was a busy month at our local border crossings. Here is a rundown of major activity from the Canada Border Services Agency:
On October 14th, a Michigan-plated vehicle driven by a male, entered Canada at the Ambassador Bridge destined for Ontario. Viagra pills and USB memory sticks were found among the man’s belongings. One of the USB sticks contained pornographic pictures of teenage boys and children. The man was arrested for smuggling child pornography and was charged under the Customs Act with possessing illegally imported goods and smuggling. The subject was transferred to Windsor Police and after a first appearance in court on October 25th, he was released on bail. His next court appearance is on December 15th.
On October 23rd, a resident of Southfield, Michigan, sought entry to Canada at the Ambassador Bridge. During the primary examination, the driver stated that he was not in possession of any firearms. The vehicle and driver were referred for an examination and a loaded handgun was located in the glove box. The Criminal Investigations Division was contacted and the subject was charged with non-report under the Customs Act as well as making false statements and possession of prohibited goods. He was released on a recognizance in the amount of $400 and is to appear in court on December 19th.
On October 15th, a six time previous deport was intercepted off the Tunnel Bus at the Windsor Tunnel. The subject was arrested and charged under the Immigration Refugee Protection Act with attempting to enter Canada without authorization. The subject was taken into custody by the CBSA, and on November 7th Roya Nasserian entered a plea of guilty in the Ontario Court of Justice for returning to Canada without authorization. She was sentenced to 120 days custody, three years of probation and given a $100 victim fine surcharge.
On October 28th, a Michigan-plated vehicle was referred for examination at the Tunnel. The driver was dropping off two males coming to visit Canada. A loaded handgun was discovered in a purse in the vehicle. Although the passengers were allowed to proceed, the driver was arrested for smuggling. She was charged under the Customs Act with non-report, untrue statements, and possession of illegally imported goods and released on a $500 recognisance order.
