Surrey RCMP say two people have been arrested after allegedly crossing the border into Canada from the U.S. just before 6 a.m. this morning.
Corporal Scotty Schumann says a man and woman walked over the border in the 184th Street at Zero Avenue.
“They weren’t known to us, obviously they are coming from a foreign country. And although they walked from the U.S., it appears they had come from another country in Europe.”
The pair have since been handed over to the Canadian Border Services agency for investigation.
“They are arrested under the immigration and refugee protection act.”
It is still unknown why the pair crossed the border.
In December, a family of six were also arrested for allegedly crossing the border illegally.
