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

Flight passenger slapped with a Rs.30,000 fine for carrying apple

She was traveling home from Paris to Denver and the flight attendant gave her an apple but she was not hungry so she put it in her purse planning to eat it later.

But the apple was revealed in a random search by U.S. border agents after her first flight landed in Minneapolis. Because the line moved so quickly, she said didn't have a moment to consider whether she should dispose of the apple and there was no announcement reminding travelers about the rules. She made a decision to keep it for her onwards journey to Denver. The $500 fine was imposed on the Colorado woman who was travelling from Paris to the United States. She told Fox 31 that the customs officer started to question her regarding the apple and where it came from. He then said to Tadlock that her trip was about to get more expensive.
