U.S. Border Patrol Spokane Sector Agents apprehend five Indian nationals, Canadian smuggler

Posted: Updated:

OROVILLE, WA - Oroville Border Patrol agents arrested six people involved in alien smuggling on February 8th.

Five illegal aliens from India were apprehended after they crossed the international border separating Canada and the United States near Molson. Once inside the United States, the group was picked up by a Canadian citizen smuggler driving a rental vehicle along 9 Mile Road. A short time later, the vehicle and occupants were stopped by Border Patrol agents just outside of Oroville. The driver and suspected smuggler, identified as Mohammed Khan, had no known relationship with the five illegal aliens who he had picked up and who had entered the United States a day earlier under false pretenses. All six individuals in the vehicle were placed under arrest and transported to the Oroville Border Patrol Station for case investigation and processing.

The aliens from India were ordered to appear before an immigration judge who will determine whether they may lawfully remain in the United States. Khan will be prosecuted for 8 USC 1324 (Alien Smuggling) and processed for deportation proceedings.

“The success of our mission relies on the dedication and vigilance of our Border Patrol agents,” stated Spokane Sector Chief Patrol Agent Henry Rolon. “This is another example of the excellent law enforcement work that our agents do in the field every day protecting our nation’s borders and communities.”
