A Canadian convicted of armed robbery in California and later deported is facing new charges of illegally reentering the United States.

Elizabeth Reid, 31, was arrested on Busti Avenue in Buffalo last week by U.S. Border patrol agents and charged with illegally entering the country after an aggravated felony conviction.

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Matthew Bitterman said Reid claimed to be a U.S. citizen and gave agents a fake California birth certificate.

Bitterman said she was ordered removed from the country on two prior occasions.
