$1M in marijuana found in brand new Ford Fusions

Share

Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time marijuana has been found inside Fords manufactured in Mexico.

DEA agents recovered the marijuana and estimated its value at about $1 million, Youngstown, Ohio, agent in charge Silverio Balzano told reporters.

Investigators with the help of Ford Motor Company determined the Ford Fusions, which were manufactured in Mexico, came to the United States by crossing the Mexican border into Arizona and made their way to northeast OH, the release says. In total, marijuana was found in 15 cars in four counties in Ohio, Balzano said, and a couple even surfaced in Pennsylvania.

The vehicle was shipped from Mexico, to a rail yard in Warren, before being searched at the dealership. (Which sounds like the sort of project that could keep stoners happy for hours.) Each pair of packages weighed about 32 pounds. Authorities are trying to discover not only where it came from, but also who failed to pick up the sticky icky along the way. Additional packages were found at other northeast OH dealerships and one in Pennsylvania. I guess this explains why they're getting smuggled into Fusions of all things. As far as we know, most were sold without this special "option". Similar seizures were made earlier this year in Minnesota and Arizona.

Both Ford and the train shipping company CSX, which transported the vehicles to the USA, say that they're taking the matter very seriously. "We are working with the FBI and Customs on an extensive investigation".

Word on the street is the new Ford Fusions are dope - but not in the way you think.

Ford Motor Company is saying that it didn't happen at their production plant nor their internal shipping yards, but somewhere along the supply chain, someone had access to the Fusions, and placed the pot in the trunk. The official vehicle of "don't tell my grandson about this".
