March 23, 2020

AKWESASNE — A human smuggling attempt that entered the U.S. through the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation on Wednesday resulted in four arrests — and a plea by the tribal police chief to smugglers.

Border Patrol agents attempted to stop a vehicle that was suspected of being involved with an alien smuggling event after the driver was observed transporting three individuals on Route 37 near Fort Covington, according to a news release from Customs and Border Protection. However, as the vehicle appeared to be stopping, three occupants got out and the driver sped up in an attempt to flee, the release said.
