SWANTON, Vt. (AP) - Authorities say U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested a man from Canada on human smuggling allegations near Alburgh, Vermont.

Daniel Larmand appeared Monday in federal court in Burlington on a charge of smuggling. Agents say they also detained a Greek national who the 52-year-old Larmand is alleged to have helped illegally enter the United States on Friday. That person hasn’t been charged with a crime.

Court documents say a sport utility-type vehicle stopped just north of the border and discharged a passenger, who then illegally walked across the border into the United States near Alburgh. Larmand entered the United States at the Alburgh Port-of-Entry and arrived at the location where Border Patrol agents detained the passenger, who said Lamand helped him.

It wasn’t immediately known if Larmand had a lawyer.
