When he returned across the border, CBP officers in Detroit compared the man's fingerprints against a database and found that he was wanted in connection to a homicide in Wyandotte County, Kansas. A photo sent from the Wyandotte County Sheriff 's Department confirmed the man's identity.

"This arrest exemplifies CBP's dedication to vigilance at our nation's borders," David Beculheimer, acting port director for CPB, said in the release. "I congratulate everyone involved in this arrest."

CPB officers in Detroit arrested Lee Edward Williams. He is scheduled to appear in a Michigan court Monday for a hearing on extradition to Kansas, where he faces a first-degree murder charge as well as a charge of illegally possessing a firearm.
