U.S. border agents have arrested a Canadian man who they say was found hiding in the trunk of a car at a western New York border crossing.
U. S. Customs and Border Protection authorities say the man was discovered during an inspection at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo on Sunday. They say he was hiding behind luggage in the trunk of an incoming vehicle.
The man was identified Monday as 41-year-old Demetry Furman of Ottawa, who'd previously been refused admission to the country because of a criminal record.
He's charged with eluding inspection.
A CBP spokesman said he did not know the nature of Furman's criminal record.
