Driver accused in border incident

A Canadian truck driver is accused of trying to help a man illegally cross the international border into Boundary County, Idaho.

Border patrol agents spotted Brian Meszarosi trying to pick up Darwin S. Canonizado on Idaho Highway 1 just south of the border on Oct. 12.

Meszarosi, recognized by agents as a wood chip hauler who frequently crosses the border, said he met Canonizado at a small gas station just west of Creston, B.C., and agreed to help him cross the border for $500, according to an affidavit prepared by investigators.

Meszarosi was to pick up Canonizado after he crossed the border and drive him to Spokane, investigators wrote.

Canonizado told investigators he is a Filipino citizen whose Canadian work visa is set to expire. He hoped to find employment in California.

Meszarosi and Canonizado are in the Boundary County Jail.
