HIGHGATE — A 41-year-old man from Massachusetts was arrested in Highgate today.

Authorities say they were contacted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in regard to a wanted person attempting to cross into the United States from Canada via the Highgate Port of Entry at around 9:40 a.m.

The suspect was identified as Robert Nguyen, of Boston, MA.

Troopers learned Nguyen had an active and extraditable arrest warrant out of the state of Maryland stemming from previous criminal charges.

He was transferred from the Port of Entry to the custody of Vermont State Police.

He was then transported to the Northwest Correctional Facility for holding on his active warrant and lack of $10,000 bail.

He was issued a criminal citation to appear in court to answer to the charge of being a fugitive from justice.
