Undeclared goods lead to charges against American man

A New Hampshire man has been fined after trying to enter Canada with a number of undeclared goods in his vehicle.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) says Robert Edward De Vico tried to enter at the Campobello port of entry on Tuesday and was referred for a secondary examination.

Officials found a prohibited .38 calibre revolver, a large amount of American cash, two grams of suspected marijuana, and 7.25 litres of alcohol.

He was arrested and charged with making false statements and failing to declare imported goods.

The CBSA say De Vico appeared in Saint John Provincial Court on Thursday, where he pled guilty to both charges and was fined $2,000.
