U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested one Mexican National using a mobile-biometric-device to confirm his identity, he was processed for removal from the United States.
On September 29, agents responded to the City of Auburn following a request for assistance from the City of Auburn Police Department.
A subject had been acting in an elusive manner and provided multiple names and dates of birth to officers in order to evade identification.
When Border Patrol agents assigned to Rangeley Station arrived, they were able to determine his correct biographical information utilizing a hand-held mobile-biometric-device (Grabba) that captures fingerprints and photographs.
According to CBP, “This piece of technology helps our agents in the field verify the identities of people who do not carry any identification documents, saving them from having to bring the person back to the station to be fingerprinted.”
“The technology available to Border Patrol agents continues to evolve, and helps agents perform their duties quicker and safer while working in the field,” said Jason Owens, Chief Patrol Agent of the Border Patrol in Maine.
