Ill. family's syrup making mistaken for meth lab
ANNA – A southern Illinois family is finding their homemade maple syrup operation anything but sweet after investigators swarmed their property, mistaking their sap collection for a meth lab.
Laura Benson told KFVS-TV that drug agents showed up at her home near Anna on Wednesday morning saying they fielded a report that a meth-making operation was on the Union County property.
When investigators pointed to buckets near some trees, the 49-year-old Benson said she quickly explained the containers were collecting sap for the family's production of syrup.
