Sep 16, 2020

HOULTON, Maine - The U.S. Border Patrol says seven people were arrested in three different border incidents last weekend even as the Maine-Canada border is closed to nonessential traffic during the pandemic.

The Border Patrol says six Romanian nationals were arrested after illegally crossing Saturday in a minivan near Hodgdon.

That same day, a man was arrested and expelled to Canada after lying about this citizenship status and trying to bring cannabis oil across the border.

In a third incident, a U.S. citizen who illegally docked his boat in Canada was detained and fined.
