A Dallas truck driver is enjoying his first weekend of freedom in seven months after what his employer said was an “honest mistake” landed him in a Mexican prison.
Jabin Bogan was transporting a load of ammunition to a Phoenix gun shop in April when he said he made a wrong turn, causing him to cross the border into Mexico, where strict firearms laws are enforced.
“He told me he was coming from the warehouse, missed a turn, and was stuck one-way going south,” said Bogan’s manager at Demco Express, Denis Mekenye. “At that point he asked a cop how to make a U-turn and was told to go three or four miles, but at that point was in Mexico.”
