WOODSTOCK, N.B. – Two people from Halifax were accused of committing fraud related to terrorist activities in connection with a bizarre incident on the border of the United States and Canada in October.
Twenty-one-year-old Bailey Roy and 22-year-old Damien Roy were both charged in Woodstock, North Carolina, with a provincial court on Wednesday.
The New Brunswick RCMP says that men are also charged with obstruction in the incident at the intersection at Woodstock and Houghton, Maine.
There is a ban on the publication in court of a ban on evidence in the case.
Mounts say they responded to a suspicious vehicle that stopped in the area between border crossings on October 26 and found two men who later refused to talk to officers or police of the Canadian Border Services Agency.
They were taken into custody by the US Customs and Border Guard about six hours after their car approached the US border.
Police claim that both men remain in custody, while Bailey Roy plans to return to court on Tuesday, and Damien Roy – on December 18.
