More detail on driver stuck in a Mexico jail
I learned today more about the U.S. truck driver who mistakenly drove into Mexico with a load of ammunition. Learned by reading news reports.
Diane and I woke up this morning at the TA truck stop in Eloy, Ariz., where we spent the night. We are on a run from Texas to California. We made a fuel stop in Eloy, showered, use the RV dump station, got the truck washed and bought a root beer float before leaving.
As Diane drove, I continued reading everything I could find about Demco Express employee Jabin Akeem Bogan. I have no knowledge of this story beyond the news reports. For whatever reason, the story of this U.S. truck driver who now sits in a Mexican jail and has no attorney has captured my interest.
Rather than restate the details, I’ll post links to the news stories here. While this blog entry is dated April 22, I will maintain continuity by adding links to subsequent news stories and my comments in this space as they develop.
