An American fugitive wanted by US federal authorities for drug possession and human trafficking was arrested Sunday and is facing deportation proceedings.  

Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime H. Morente said Corey West Glenn, 43, was arrested in Makati City by operatives from the BI’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) and will be deported “for being an undesirable alien whose presence here poses a risk to public safety and security.”

Glenn is wanted by authorities in Missouri and Arkansas where he is the subject of outstanding arrest warrants issued by US courts. His passport was revoked by the US government, making him an undocumented and illegally staying alien in the country.

BI intelligence officer and FSU chief Bobby Raquepo said warrants were issued against Glenn by two Judicial Circuit Courts for failing to appear in scheduled hearings.

He faces multiple felonies and misdemeanor charges before a Missouri court, which pertain to various traffic violations and aggravated offenses. BI officials said deportation proceeding against Glenn is ongoing. (Rommel F. Lopez)
