Crossing us/canadian border

I am a Canadian citizen with an arrest from 1988 for shoplifting that was subsequently pardoned. In 2016 when asked by a us border agent if I had been arrested I answered yes. He could find nothing on my file but I now have a note of the incident. The agent told me they only recognize pardons issued by a us president and I need a court disposition to close my file. I have crossed the us border regularly for years without incident and intended to cross regularly in the future. Will a court disposition allow me to cross freely? Is a disposition required since there is no record of an arrest?
