Officers Mistake Maple Syrup for Meth in Drug Raid

by on February 22, 2013

Neighbors of a family in Southern Illinois alerted police that they had noticed suspicious buckets around the Benson’s property. However, when police arrived, expecting to find a methamphetamine manufacturing facility, they instead were directed to a stash of maple syrup.

Laura Benson informed police that her husband had been cooking up the syrup for the past five years and sent the officers home with samples.
