Jamaican man bringing HONEY into the U.S. is detained for 82 days after authorities mistakenly thought it was liquid meth and he was left languishing in jail while tests were done

Leon Haughton, who has lived in Maryland for 10 years, was taken into custody after flying in from Jamaica when authorities suspected his honey was actually liquid methamphetamine

  • Leon Haughton, 45, was arrested on December 29 when he flew into Baltimore after visiting his family for Christmas in Jamaica
  • Haughton, who has lived in Maryland for 10 years, bought three bottles of honey from his favorite roadside stand to bring back with him
  • The agents told him they suspected him of transporting liquid methamphetamine after a dog sniffed his bag
  • Tests took more than two weeks to arrive and they came back negative before being sent to another laboratory for further testing  
  • Charges were dropped and he was freed on March 21 after 82 days in custody
  • Haughton believes he was stereotyped because of his race because agents questioned him about being in a Jamaican gang
  • The 45-year-old had bought three bottles of honey (above) from his favorite roadside stand to bring back with him from Jamaica. They were seized when he flew back into Baltimore after authorities suspected they were laced with liquid methamphetamine

A Jamaican national was detained for nearly three months in the U.S. after bringing in three bottles of honey from the Caribbean island that customs agents mistakenly thought was liquid methamphetamine.

Leon Haughton, who has lived in Maryland for 10 years, had gone back to visit his family in Jamaica over Christmas.

The 45-year-old had bought three bottles of honey from his favorite roadside stand to bring back with him.   

His long ordeal started on December 29 when he landed back at Baltimore-Washington International Airport and customs agents had a dog sniff his bags.
