On Monday, the Tactical Communications Center (TCC) at the Swanton Sector Headquarters notified Border Patrol agents of a potential illegal border crossing near Rainville Road in Highgate.

Agents responded to the area and deployed a Border Patrol canine team which quickly located the group.  Three individuals were apprehended approximately 200 yards from the main road attempting to conceal themselves under brush.  A fourth person fled the scene and was apprehended after a short foot pursuit.  The four people are citizens of Mexico without immigration documentation allowing them to enter or remain in the United States legally  They were taken into custody and transported to the Swanton Border Patrol Station for additional record checks and post arrest processing.

“Border Patrol canines are trained to detect persons attempting to conceal themselves,” said Patrol Agent in Charge Matt Sherman.  “The quick response of the Border Patrol agents and the Border Patrol canine team led to the apprehension of four individuals illegally trying to enter the United States.”

The four individuals were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) for removal proceedings.

The Swanton Sector is responsible for securing the land border between ports of entry in Vermont, New Hampshire and northeastern New York.
