Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued tickets to 29 people for alleged immigration violations at a checkpoint on I-93 near Woodstock on Sunday.  

 

The violations were for legal visitors to the U.S. who didn’t have appropriate paperwork on them, as required by law, accordign to the CBP.

 

Agents also made six marijuana seizures.

 

A checkpoint held over Memorial Day weekend on Route 3 led to six of the same immigration citations, but also no arrests.
