Burien Man detained at Sea-Tac
A 33-year-old Burien man was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Sea-Tac Airport Sunday, Feb. 3. He was attempting to depart to Ho Chi Minh City via Incheon, South Korea. Sovannarit Son, a U.S. permanent resident, Vietnamese national, was allegedly trying to flee the United States on a one-way ticket. CBP officers conducted a name check, which resulted in the discovery of a warrant. The warrant was for rape of a child 1, and rape of a child 2, and had been issued on Jan. 22. U.S. CBP officers held Son until the Port of Seattle Police responded and took custody of Son for transport to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
