Border Patrol arrests three
DERBY — Federal prosecutors say two men from Montreal and another from the Dominican Republic are being held on charges that one of the men helped the other two cross into the country from Quebec in the Derby area without permission.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Jonas Paul-Emile, of Montreal, entered the United States alone in New York on Sunday.
The next day Border Patrol agents saw Paul-Emile drive to an area close to the border and stop briefly before leaving the area and going south on Interstate 91, authorities say.
The car was stopped and agents found 41-year-old Emmanuel Badio Jr., also of Montreal, in the car along with 30-year-old Juan Rodriguez-Castro, of the Dominican Republic. The two did not have permission to be in the country.
