Cocaine, not octane, was vehicle's problem

Cocaine, not octane, was vehicle's problem
March 29, 2005

The history of a used car could lead to legal problems for a previous owner.

SLIDELL, La. (AP)- A reliable family car suddenly developed a tendency to decelerate, leading to the discovery that it had been driven for years with $40,000 worth of cocaine stashed in the gas tank.

A suburban New Orleans family had bought the 1996 Toyota Camry from a used car lot in 1997.

"They hadn't had any major mechanical difficulties with it until last week," he sheriff's spokesman James Hartman said Tuesday.

When the car started losing speed, it was taken to a mechanic, who discovered two bricks of cocaine wrapped around the vehicle's fuel line. The wrapping had apparently come loose recently.

The car's owners are not involved in drug trafficking, Hartman stressed. Their names were withheld in case the owners of the stash come looking for them.

"Our investigators will now attempt to work backward and see where that vehicle had originated," Hartman said.

Reminds me of the guy who bought a red convertable froma police auction, and they stopped him at the mexican border and a drug dog found 20 lbs of ganja stashed in the bumpers, and he spent 3 months in jail for drugs that weren't even his. it took them 3 months to figure it out. :sad:

Wow, bummer... that must have really sucked. If only they could have found it themselves first, you know what im saying? :smile:


The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
