A Canadian, who has been banned from the United States has been caught in Orleans County

A Canadian, who has been banned from the United States because of a court conviction for crimes in his home county, has been caught in Orleans County in a truck carrying about 93 pounds of marijuana, the U.S. Border Patrol reported. Charbel Loubos, 43, was knowingly found in the United States on Monday after having been deported in 2001 and had not received permission from the U.S. Attorney General to reapply for admission. A search of Loubos also revealed about one gram of cocaine and various other suspected narcotics in pill form, court records show. Border Patrol Agent Raymundo Ramos said the Department of Homeland Security databases revealed that Loubos was previously removed from the U.S. on June 19, 2001, through Miami, Florida due to his Canadian convictions of crimes. The case began to unfold on Monday, when Border Patrol Agent Wesley Martin was patrolling the U.S./Canada border near Vermont 105 and West Jay Road Martin became suspicious of the truck and learned it was registered to a home address in the town of Stratton, about 3.5 hours away. Martin eventually signaled for the truck to stop, and he found three people inside. A second Border Patrol agent with a K-9 certified for drug detection arrived at the scene and determined there were drugs in the truck. Inspection uncovered four black hockey bags containing 93 pounds of marijuana. Loubus was due to appear in U.S. District Court in Burlington late Tuesday, but details of the hearing were unknown.
