This senior-citizen’s trip across the border lasted far longer than expected when authorities couldn’t tell the difference between oil and heroin.
Janet Goodin of Minnesota was crossing the border to play bingo and visit family when border patrol guards mistook a container of motor oil for heroin.
‘They handed me the jar and said. ‘What’s this?’ I said ‘Well, I don’t know. I suppose it’s oil or something left over,” really not thinking too much about it,’ she said.
