Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents have arrested a Phoenix, Arizona, man at the Pacific Highway border crossing who was wanted in California for alleged sexual assault.

CBP officers arrested Christopher Darling, 71, on May 21 after a name check revealed a felony warrant out for his arrest. Darling was entering the U.S. at the Pacific Highway crossing as a commercial truck driver when the arrest was made.

CBP agents verified the warrant with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office, which was seeking Darling in connection with alleged sexual assault charges. Darling was turned over to the Washington State Patrol for extradition to San Diego.
