2 Canadians arrested as they attempt to enter US on rail car

PORTAL, N.D. — Two Canadian citizens with felony warrants for their arrest were apprehended as they tried to illegally enter the United States by hiding in a railroad car.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in Portal announced Thursday that 28-year-old Lorraine Houle and 23-year-old Jean Corriveau were apprehended last week after they were detected by a Customs x-ray station. Authorities then determined the two had felony warrants in Canada and were in possession of drug paraphernalia.

The individuals were turned over to Canadian Border Services Agency and arrested by Canadian Pacific Railway Police.
