Ottawa, Ontario, June 4, 2012 - Today, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) added five new profiles of individuals to the "Wanted by the CBSA" list.
The "Wanted by the CBSA" program has proven to be a useful tool in assisting border services officers to locate individuals who are wanted for removal. To date, as a result of the "Wanted by the CBSA" program, Canadians have assisted in locating 25 individuals in Canada, while five individuals were located abroad. In addition, the CBSA has removed 19 of these individuals from Canada. These five new profiles announced today are featured alongside cases highlighted in the past.
Today, it was also confirmed that Damion Rami Butler, an individual who is on the list for serious criminality, was removed from Canada on May 31. On January 18, Butler was apprehended by the Immigration Task Force (which includes officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ontario Provincial Police, Toronto police and the CBSA) in the Greater Toronto Area as a result of a tip received from the public.
The public's assistance with the "Wanted by the CBSA" program has been tremendous and the CBSA encourages the public to frequently visit the "Wanted by the CBSA" Web page for updates on new cases, apprehensions and removals.
If you have information about suspicious cross-border activity or immigration-related offences, please contact the CBSA by calling the Border Watch Toll-free Line at 1-888-502-9060. Members of the public are reminded that they should not take action to apprehend the individuals listed on the Web site.
