More Pigeon River Border Tales

A recent report from the Canada Border Service Agency tells of how two Canadian Residents picking up packages in the United States were left with a hefty fine.  The traveller was told to go into the office and pay the duty and taxes on their parcels when they told the border agents they didn't have their receipts and they would go to their car to look up the details on their cell phone.   Instead of returning to the office they ran away without paying.  OPP caught up to the man and as a result he was charged a thousand dollars on top of the taxes and duty on his goods.
