$1 Million In Pot Found In Shipment Of New Ford Fusions

While looking through new Ford Fusions shipped from Mexico to a dealership in OH, workers found packages of marijuana worth $1 million stashed in the spare-tire wheel wells of the cars, according to media reports.

The sheriff said investigators, with the assistance of Ford Motor Company, were able to determine the cars were manufactured in Mexico and entered the US crossing the Mexican border into Arizona, making their way to Northeast Ohio.

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

Now, investigators are trying to discover where along the supply line the marijuana was packed into the cars - and who failed to retrieve it. "Generally speaking, they could take it off anywhere else along the way".

After touching down at a dealership in Youngstown, Ohio, Fusions loaded with pairs of half-crescent packs of weed in place of spare tires were found between the dates of July 7 to 11.

Doak said no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

A drug task force in Ohio's Portage County was called to a Ford dealership this week after a service department employee found a package of pressed marijuana in a spare tire compartment during a vehicle inspection.

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

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

Dilworth police said the cars were transported in sealed BNSF Railway cars.

Local law enforcement, along with the Drug Enforcement Administration and customs officials want to find out how they had access, and who let it slip through the cracks.

It's said that the new Ford Fusion has good space, but this likely isn't what the company had in mind.

We're aware of the situation and are taking it very seriously.

Ford said they confirmed, "this is not happening at our plant or at our internal shipping yards".
