Campbell Webster and Eryk Bean were returning from winning a bagpipe contest in Canada and drove across the border in Vermont. That's where customs officials seized their bagpipes for containing ivory. The U.S. prohibits importing ivory taken after 1975.

Customs officials still forced them to pay $576 in fees because they came back across the border at a "non-designated crossing."
