Wrong Turn Leads to Arrest, Deportation

Emiliano Ponce-Villa—a Mexican national who had been living in Jonesport—was arrested at the border crossing in Houlton last week. He made the mistake of letting his live-in girlfriend drive.
On Friday, the driver of the car, who is a U.S. citizen, allegedly told U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers in Houlton that she and Ponce-Villa had been living together in Jonesport. The woman, who has not been charged, according to court documents, told border agents that the couple was going to Boston on Friday, but headed north instead of south on Interstate 95. [Link]
