Romulus, Mich. – On August 18, a Chinese national arrived at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport from Beijing. When first encountered, the passenger gave a negative declaration to carrying any prohibited items. During an examination of the traveler’s luggage, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers discovered undeclared ballistic armor and other tactical apparel. CBP Officers also discovered evidence that the traveler possessed a significant weapons cache at his U.S. residence, which appeared to include prohibited items.
Based on these findings, CBP collaborated with various investigative agencies who obtained consent to search the traveler’s residence. This search resulted in the discovery of a significant cache of firearms and other regulated paraphernalia.
CBP Officers determined the passenger was inadmissible to the United States and subsequently returned him to China.
“CBP personnel are committed to protecting our nation from people who pose serious risks to our communities,” said Devin Chamberlain, CBP Area Port Director. “I am proud of the work performed every day by our CBP Officers and investigative partners to ensure the safety and security of our nation.”
