Woman Fined $500 for Trying to Take Delta Snack Apple through Customs

While speaking to Fox 31 Denver, Crystal Tadlock said that when the flight was midway, the flight attendants gave passengers free apples in plastic bags as snacks. She made a decision to keep it for her onwards journey to Denver.

Once Ms Tadlock arrived in the United States, she went through customs and her bag was chosen to be randomly searched, Fox 31 reported. She said the Customs agent pulled out the apple in the plastic bag with Delta's logo on it. Tadlock explained she's just received the snack from the airline and asked if she could throw it out or eat it.

Tadlock says the agent asked her if her trip to France was expensive and when she said yes he told her it was about to get more expensive after charging her $500.

Tadlock has filed a complaint with the CBP against the border patrol agent, because she said he was unnecessarily rude and seemed to take pleasure in her unfortunate situation.

She was traveling for the first time using Global Entry, a Customs and Border Protection program that allows U.S. citizens to go through an expedited process upon returning from an worldwide trip.

A spokesperson with Delta said in a statement, "we encourage our customers to follow U.S. Customs and Border Protection protocols".

As Minneapolis was her first landing point in the US, Ms Tadlock was required to declare all food products, or deposit the offending item in an "amnesty bin".

Australia has the same rules for all passengers entering the country.

Tadlock can either pay the $500 or fight the charge in court.
