BORDER

 
Drug bust made at bridge

 
A Falls man was charged and his NEXUS pass revoked after being caught with marijuana at the Whirlpool Bridge.
On Wednesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers encountered Peter Lelievre, a 58-year-old Canadian citizen living in Niagara Falls, N.Y., as an applicant for admission into the U.S. at the Whirlpool Bridge border crossing.
Lelievre is a participant in the NEXUS alternative inspection program and utilized the NEXUS dedicated bridge to facilitate his crossing. A Customs canine officer was working at the bridge at the time of Lelievre’s crossing and alerted to his vehicle. 
During the course of the inspection, CBP officers searched Lelievre shoes and a small bag of green leafy substance was discovered. When questioned if he had any more substance on his person, Lelievre voluntarily removed a bag containing three small plastic containers from his groin area. All together, 25.6 grams of green leafy substance was discovered that later field-tested positive for marijuana.
Lelievre was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and turned over to the Niagara Falls Police Department and charged with criminal possession of marijuana. Additionally, Lelievre’s NEXUS membership was immediately revoked.
