Canadian Man Intercepted After Stealing Boat

A Canadian man was arrested Monday and sent back to his country of residence after stealing a commercial fishing boat from Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick and heading for the U.S.

The boat was intercepted by the Coast Guard and the offender taken into custody by the US Border Patrol. The man was immediately expelled to Canada instead being prosecuted for illegally entering the U.S. due to new rules designed to prevent the further spread of Covid 19.
