OPP capture border runner on Hwy 61, near Blake Hall Rd.
The Canada Border Services Agency has taken custody of an American man accused of running the border at Pigeon River.
The agency called the OPP for help after a northbound driver approaching from Minnesota failed to stop at the border crossing south of Thunder Bay on Tuesday night.
Police officers first spotted the vehicle on Highway 61, near Blake Hall Road, and activated their cruiser lights and sirens.
The driver initially failed to stop but was eventually apprehended.
A 36-year-old man from San Antonio, Texas was arrested.
The OPP say they used a "rolling block" to force the vehicle to a halt.
That's a procedure in which one police cruiser gets in front of a vehicle being pursued while a second is driven beside it, gradually slowing it down while avoiding a collision.
The incident happened just before 9:30 p.m.
