American citizen charged for uncustomed goods

Story PictureA wanted U.S. national was nabbed today between mile two and three on the Northern Highway by Customs and Immigration personnel and finds himself behind bars tonight. A bench warrant had been issued in San Pedro earlier this year for forty-seven year old Rod Cooper. He was found traveling northwards in an SUV this morning when the officers recognized his face from all-point bulletin. Originally from California, Cooper was charged in June of this year for Uncustomed Goods in connection with two jet skis. But when Cooper failed to appear in court a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. Cooper was escorted before Senior Magistrate Dorothy Flowers but she could not deal with the matter since it is before the San Pedro court, so Cooper was remanded to the Hattieville Prison until Monday when he will appear before the San Pedro Magistrate.
