US trucker nabbed with ammo in Mexico is freed

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A Dallas trucker detained for eight months in Mexico on accusations that he smuggled assault rifle ammunition is expected to return today to the United States.

Jabin Bogan was released from a Mexican prison about two weeks ago but was later detained by immigration authorities. Attorney Carlos Spector tells The Associated Press that a plane carrying Bogan is expected to land in the Mexican border city of Juarez this afternoon. Bogan is scheduled to speak at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, a few hours later.

Bogan was arrested in April with 268,000 rounds of ammunition. He says he took a wrong turn off a highway in El Paso and accidentally crossed into Mexico.

He tried to turn back, but was directed to an inspection area and arrested.
