Canadian Man Arrested After Allegedly Walking Across Border

Tools

A Canadian man who walked across the border into the United States was arrested Sunday after Border Patrol agents followed his footprints in the snow.

Border Patrol officials say the man walked across the frozen Lake of the Isles in the St. Lawrence River and they followed his footprints to a home near the border, despite his attempts to hide his tracks.

Agents called state police and Jefferson County sheriff's deputies, who entered the home and found the man hiding in the basement.

The suspect was taken to the Wellesley Island Border Patrol station, where he was processed and returned to Canada. He's barred from entering the U.S. for five years.
