Youth pastor arrested after teen found in trunk

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — An Illinois youth pastor faces sex and pornography charges after customs agents found a 16-year-old girl in the trunk of his car as he tried to cross into Canada.

Michael Quillman of Thompsonville, Ill., was arrested at a border crossing over the weekend and charged Tuesday.

Police found videotapes showing the man and girl engaged in sex acts, said prosecutor Royce Buckingham. The girl told police they were headed for Alaska through Canada and had a dating relationship, said John Brand, interim deputy police chief in Blaine.
