Stopped at the border!


A dangerous foreign infiltrator was stopped at the border by federal agents who combined information and forces from multiple federal and state agencies, reports AP.

Work by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialists in International Falls and Detroit helped find a small yet destructive beetle stowing away in a shipment from China.

The agency says this week the khapra beetle was found in a rail container carrying tile.
