Windsor police officer attempted to cross into the U.S. via the Detroit border with cocaine Saturday, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says.
David M. Bshouty, 31, was off-duty when arrested at the Ambassador Bridge International Border Crossing in Detroit.
“It is alleged that Bshouty was found to be in possession of cocaine at the time he was crossing into the United States from Windsor, Ontario,” Worthy’s office said in a statement Tuesday.
Department of Homeland Security officers arrested Bshouty and Worthy charged him with possession of less than 25 grams Monday.
“He was immediately taken into custody by Border Patrol authorities. On April 14, 2014, he was charged by Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy with Possession of under 25 Grams of a Narcotic and was arraigned by Judge Michael Wagner. He received a $25,000/ 10% bond and his preliminary examination is scheduled for April 25, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.
