Micmac Posted December 5, 2010 Share Posted December 5, 2010 Man arrested after following GPS cuts deal, dropped off at border 12/3/10 10:50 am Updated: 12/3/10 10:56 am By The Associated Press FARMINGTON, Maine — A Canadian man who followed GPS directions to a U.S. border post with a pound of marijuana in his vehicle has settled his legal case in Maine by surrendering his truck and paying $490 in fines and fees. Fifty-four-year-old Darrell Fudge of Newfoundland said he never intended to enter the United States on Sunday and he thought the border post was a toll bridge. Instead, U.S. agents searched his truck and discovered the marijuana in a cooler. The case was turned over to Maine police. On Wednesday, Fudge pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge and he forfeited a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The Sun Journal of Lewiston says Fudge was then given a ride to the border. Fudge's lawyer says Fudge never wants to visit Maine again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
