File photo, Detroit-Windsor Tunnel

An Indiana man, heading to Canada thorough the Detroit-Windsor tunnel to see some autographed goods in Toronto, was busted by Canada Border Services Agency officers for failing to declare the goods back in September.

In a report released today detailing Canada Border Services infractions in September, the man reportedly entered Canada on September 21st, through the tunnel, and was sent to secondary inspection to verify his “nil” declaration.

While examining the vehicle, border services officers discovered an undeclared baseball autographed by the Beatles, and several other signed items, such as record covers and booklets, valued at $90,000 US.

The 54-year-old man, who is a collector, was arrested by border services officers and charged by CBSA’s Criminal Investigations Division with failing to report goods, making false statements and evading payment of duties contrary to the Customs Act.
