U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations, at the Charleston Seaport arrested a Goose Creek, S.C., woman on Wednesday who was wanted in connection with a local murder.

The woman, destined to depart Charleston for the Bahamas on December 7, was the subject of an arrest warrant out of Berkeley County, S.C., for Obstructing Justice – Aiding and Abetting Murder.

After verifying the individual’s identity and confirming the warrant, CBP officers, with assistance from South Carolina Ports Authority Police, arrested the individual and turned her over to the U.S. Marshals Service.

“Intercepting dangerous criminals in coordination with our law enforcement partners is an important part of what Customs and Border Protection does to ensure people entering and departing the United States do not pose a risk to our communities, or escape justice," said Robert Fencel, CBP Area Port Director in Charleston.

On average, CBP arrests 21 wanted persons at air, land and sea ports of entry across the United States. Additionally, CBP routinely conducts inspection operations on arriving and departing international passenger vessels and intercepts narcotics, weapons, currency, prohibited agriculture products, and other illicit items.
