2 Seattle Men Busted By Border Patrol For Candy Smuggling
The Customs and Border Patrol briefly detained two Seattle men after discovering illegal candy in their possession while crossing into the United States.
Brandon Loo and Christopher Sweeney were detained for about two hours by CBP at the U.S./Canadian border as they were re-entering the United States for illegally transporting candy prohibited in the United States deemed to be a choking hazard.
The men had six Kinder Eggs that were discovered during a routine search. The U.S. has banned them due to a choking hazard and the CBP says they confiscate as many as 60,000 a year found in passengers suitcases and incoming mail to the United States.
Both Loo and Sweeney were released with a warning.
