EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The boss of a truck driver caught with 268,000 rounds of ammunition in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, says his employee took a wrong turn on his way to deliver what he says was legal cargo bound for an Arizona dealer.

Denis Mekenye, operations manager at Demco freight company in the Dallas suburb of Arlington, said Thursday that driver Jabin Bogan made “a very honest mistake” when he took a wrong turn that eventually led him to Mexico.

Mekenye says the ammunition was on its way from Tennessee to United Nations Ammunition in Phoenix.

The federal prosecutors office in northern Chihuahua state says the 37-year-old Bogan is being held pending investigation on illegal weapons charges. Spokesman Angel Torres says the driver claimed he had no goods to declare.
