RICHFORD, Vt. (AP) The U.S. Border Patrol says agents used a canine team to help locate two Mexican citizens who did not have permission to be in the United States who were spotted in a remote field along the Canadian border with Vermont.
Agents were notified Monday morning that a male and a female carrying luggage were spotted walking southbound into the United States in the town of Richford.
Responding agents spotted the couple, but then lost sight of them as they got closer.
A Border Patrol canine team followed their trail from the last reported location and found the couple hiding near a river bank.
The couple was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.
