$1 Million Worth Of Marijuana Found Inside New Ford Fusions Again

$1 Million Worth Of Marijuana Found Inside New Ford Fusions Again

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

The cars were manufactured at a Ford plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, and then were shipped to a dealership in OH, where the marijuana was found, DEA agent Silverio Balzano said.

The pot was found stashed in the wheel wells for the vehicles' spare tires at a dealership in Youngstown between July 7 and July 11, Balzano said.

Each of the wheels weighed approximately 14.5 kilos, or almost 32 pounds.

The remaining cars were delivered to other dealerships in Portage, Stark and Columbiana Counties, as well as one in Pennsylvania.

"During this investigation, investigators determined that a rail vehicle containing 15 new Ford Fusions had their spare tires removed, replacing them with compressed packages of marijuana resembling a tire", Doak said.

When all was said and done, the drugs were found in 15 cars in four counties in OH, and a few even made their way to Pennsylvania.

Beyond pure encryption, customers also told IBM they wanted this capability delivered in a cost-effective way. Mauri said the core of the system-software, hardware and firmware-is usually in development about 3 years.

The investigation is ongoing.

In all investigators recovered nine additional packages of marijuana, in four different counties.

Both Ford and the train shipping company CSX, which transported the vehicles to the US, say that they're taking the matter very seriously.

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.

A CSX spokesman told CNN that the company is "providing all the support we can to the agencies who are investigating this serious crime and will continue to do so".

According to Alpha News, approximately 1,100 pounds of marijuana was smuggled into the USA via 22 Mexican-made Ford Fusions between February and March.
