U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Field Operations officers took into custody Michael Pinkney, 28, of Ridgecrest, California on December 7 for allegedly being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun when he attempted to enter the United States at the Peace Arch border crossing.

Pinkney was characterized as incoherent and rambling resulting in a heightened level of suspicion that caused officers to isolate him from the rest of the traveling public.
