NEWS / Dulles CBP Arrests Pittsburgh Rape Suspect

Sterling, VA – Customs and Border Protection officers at Washington-Dulles International Airport arrested Branden Frazier on Friday night on Pittsburgh Police Department charges of strong arm rape.

Frazier, 18, of Pittsburgh, arrived to Dulles from Frankfurt, Germany at about 7:40 p.m. Friday. He was referred to a secondary inspection where CBP officers confirmed Frazier’s identity and arrested him.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police confirmed the warrant and extradition request with the Pittsburgh Police Department and took Frazier into custody.

“CBP officers take great pride in bringing fugitives to justice, particularly one charged with a crime as heinous as this charge alleges,” said Christopher Hess, CBP port director for the Port of Washington. “CBP’s capability to detect and arrest wanted fugitives is one of the unique consequences of CBP’s mission of protecting the nation at our ports of entry. We know precisely who is attempting entry to the U.S. and can vett them prior to their arrival.”

Airlines are required to submit passenger manifests to CBP prior to their international flights departing from foreign soil. CBP then vetts those passengers against several law enforcement databases to identify those who may pose a threat to the U.S., or who have outstanding arrest warrants, or who have previous immigration, customs or agriculture violations.

CBP officers and agriculture specialists processed more than three million passengers at Dulles during fiscal year 2009.
