Crime Alert: A Prisoner is Arrested when Trying to Cross a Border from Canada to the US!

According to the reports by U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Bill Kingsford a refugee, Jacob Moritz who was charged and accused of illegal activities like smuggling and trafficking and run away some 29 years ago got arrested last month when he was trying to escape from Canada to the US.

The fugitive was going to meet his family, as he said. He was one of the individuals from his gang to smuggle drugs and prohibited goods from Jamaica, Morocco, Colombia, Thailand, and Lebanon. He has been caught red-handedly but his other companions got escaped and remain un-seized by the authorities.

The unwilling and uncooperative behavior by a criminal on a border caused a questioning sentence towards him. The police and law authorities found him guilty after its identification from his fingerprints.

There is an unclarified statement regarding Jacob Moritz, either he was there to meet his family or concealed to cross a border.

Kingsford stated that “From what we understood, it was just him trying to get back into the United States to reunite with his family

Kingsford also said that “There are not a lot of people who cross there illegally.”

According to the spokesperson Melissa Hornbein. The case has been prosecuted by Martin Klotz who is the attorney and a representative by James Moritz. He confronted about his criminal and illegal activities that include charges about smuggling of heroin and marijuana in the United States. The hearing occurred on Monday.

The distribution of narcotics and drugs were observed on a larger scale in different countries like Morocco, Lebanon, and Colombia. The freighters were used to load a huge number of such goods as to spread the business more rapidly.

According to the reports, more than 120 tons of drugs between 1971 and 1985 were smuggled according to an article published in New York Times, 1991.

LaMorte then sent behind the bars for 50 years with a fine of $49.2 million. Co-defendants Fayez Barade and Harry Sunila have been accused of a crime but still, they are bare-handed.
