The Bureau of Immigration (BI) is deporting an American fugitive wanted by US federal authorities for drug possession and human trafficking.
BI Commissioner Jaime H. Morente said 43-year-old Corey West Glenn was arrested last Sunday in Makati City by operatives from the BI’s fugitive search unit (FSU).
The BI chief said Glenn will be deported “for being an undesirable alien whose presence here poses a risk to public safety and security.”
He added that Glenn’s passport was revoked by the US government, thus, making him an undocumented and illegally staying alien in the country.
He further disclosed that the American was wanted by authorities in Missouri and Arkansas where he is the subject of outstanding arrest warrants issued by the US courts.
According to FSU chief Bobby Raquepo, a bench warrant was issued against Glenn by the Judicial Circuit Court in Benton County, Arkansas on 18 July 2018.
The warrant was issued after he allegedly failed to appear in the hearing for the charges of trafficking in persons, and delivery of controlled substance that were filed against him.
Raquepo said that on 16 August 2018, the Judicial Circuit Court in Taney County, Missouri issued another warrant against Glenn, also for his failure to appear in a scheduled hearing.
It was learned that Glenn faces multiple felonies and misdemeanor charges before the Missouri court, which pertain to various traffic violations and aggravated offenses.
