Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
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.
