BUFFALO, N.Y (STL.News) U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Donyell Williams, 26, and Johnny Greer, 20, of Michigan, were arrested and charged by criminal complaint with fleeing and evading a checkpoint operated by federal law enforcement in a motor vehicle in excess of the legal speed limit and with eluding examination and inspection by immigration officers. The charges carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, on March 5, 2021, at approximately 10:00 p.m., the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) alerted Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Lewiston Port of Entry, that a black Jeep Commander with Ohio license plates had just fled the CBSA secondary inspection area. The driver was identified as defendant Williams, and the passenger was identified as defendant Greer. CBSA advised that after defendants arrived at their checkpoint, they were directed to a secondary inspection area and instructed to remain in the vehicle while a records check was conducted. Williams and Greer immediately drove off at a high rate of speed against traffic back through the CBSA primary lanes towards the United States.
