A Canadian man has been arrested trying to sneak into the U.S. through a rail tunnel linking Windsor and Detroit.

On May 1, U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Detroit Station spotted someone riding an inbound freight train from Windsor to Detroit.

Agents contacted Canadian Pacific Railway and requested that the train be stopped.

Once stopped, the agents arrested a 33-year-old for illegal entry into the U.S. 

At the station, it was determined that the man was subject to an active criminal bench warrant from London for possession of weapon dangerous to public.

The subject was processed for expedited removal and immediately turned over to the custody of Canada Border Services Agency.
