On Tuesday, August 4, agents from the station near Amity in Maine arrested the 36-year-old women who admitted to being a Chinese national illegally present in the United States.
According to the statement, agents were able to verify the location where she illegally entered the United States by matching footprints belonging to the suspect. “The woman told them she had been legally allowed in Canada as a student, then illegally crossed the border in the hope of visiting her friend in California,” according to the Post.
