Boy Scouts Detained By Border Patrol

DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - An Iowa man travelling with a Boy Scout Troop says a gun was pointed at them by security on a recent trip to Alaska.
Jim Fox was travelling in a van with Troop 111; they were headed over the border from Canada to Alaska.
He says as the troop was headed into Alaska one of the scouts took a picture of a border patrol agent.
Fox says as soon as the picture was snapped, agents surrounded the troop, detained them and began doing a search of the van.
He says when a scout tried to get luggage of the top of the van to be searched, an agent drew his weapon.
No one was hurt and after four hours, the troop was allowed to continue into U.S. territory.
Agents told the boys that taking a photo of a border patrol agent is a federal offense.
Charles Vonderheid with the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts of America says Troop 111 learned a valuable lesson: that it's important to abide by the law.
