Actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, were detained at the Vermont border late Friday while trying to enter the U.S. from Canada.

According to a press release from the Vermont State Police, the Quaids were stopped at the Highgate Port of Entry at around 8 p.m. ET Friday night days after Canadian officials announced he would be deported.

The Quaids are considered fugitives, wanted in Santa Barbara, Calif., to face felony vandalism charges from 2010 after they were found squatting in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned.

The couple skipped several court appearances and fled to Canada, where Evi Quaid was granted citizenship. Randy Quaid was denied his request for permanent residency in Canada.

On Friday, both were taken into custody by Vermont State Troopers and transported to the St. Albans Barracks for processing. Bail was set at $500,000 each.

After processing had been completed, the actor was transported to the North West State Correctional Center and his wife was transported to the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility.

“Upon further investigation and consultation with the Franklin County State’s Attorney’s Office it was determined both Randall and Evi meet the requirements to be extradited on their felony warrants,” read the press release.
