It was an interesting case for Canadian Border Services officers at the Port of Osoyoos Monday.
Communications manager for the CBSA, Paula Shore, says officers became suspicious of a female driving a vehicle through the border.
“They referred the vehicle for a secondary examination and while looking through the car, officers discovered a backpack of men’s clothing. Further examination revealed a man hiding in the trunk,” says Shore.
She says the driver and her hidden passenger were arrested by the CBSA and turned over to the RCMP.
“Edna Ennis, a Canadian resident, has been charged with providing false information to a CBSA officer and aiding a person to contravene the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.”
Ennis is a Kelowna resident.
Shore says Donald Carl Mclean, a U.S. citizen, has been charged with failing to report to a CBSA officer.
