Don't lie at the border

People continue to lie to border guards at the Pigeon River crossing.  Border agents have been busy last month writing 10 warnings for undeclared or undervalued goods and conducting four seizures.  In one situation, a man bringing in a snowmobile trailer told the guard he paid 400 dollars for it.  After doing some digging the guard found that the trailer actually cost 800 dollars and the man had faked his invoice.  He was forced to pay over 220 dollars; had he just told the truth the tax on his trailer would have come out to 20 dollars Canadian.
