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.
