Suspected meth lab turns out to be sweet maple syrup

UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Union County family got the scare of their lives on Wednesday morning as drug agents swarmed onto their property.

"They had a report of a meth lab going on on our property. And they wanted to investigate it."

So the Benson's gladly showed the officers what they really were doing, which was making their own maple syrup.

But such a waste of taxpayer funds...the neighbors should have been more "neighborly" and less" nosy", then they would have known what the heck was going on.
