Canadian with pot arrested in Maine; GPS blamed

Agents found a pound of marijuana in his car

Associated Press

COBURN GORE, Maine — A Canadian man is in a Maine jail after his GPS directed him to a remote U.S. border crossing where agents found a pound of marijuana in his car.

Officials say 54-year-old Darrell Fudge was driving from British Columbia back to his home in Newfoundland Sunday and he did not intend to enter the United States, but his GPS gave him the shortest route, which led through northern Maine.

Federal authorities found the marijuana in a cooler. They turned the case over the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Fudge appeared in court Monday in Lewiston. His attorney says Fudge wants to settle the case.
