Ford's "Better Idea"?

11 posts in this topic

"NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) — A shipment of Ford Fusions traveling by rail from Mexico to Minnesota has been found to have marijuana hidden inside the vehicles. The shipment contained 15 Ford Fusions and each one had marijuana concealed in the trunks' spare-tire space, the Arizona Daily Star reported (http://bit.ly/2qAz3Zc ) Thursday.

A truck driver in a Minnesota rail yard had discovered the pot in two vehicles, which prompted a search of the other 13.  Each of the first two cars had 40 pounds (18 kilograms) of marijuana molded into the shape of spare tires and tucked inside plastic wrap, aluminum foil, coffee grounds and garbage bags."

"Police searched more than 400 other vehicles in the Dilworth rail yard and found 217 pounds (98 kilograms) of marijuana packaged and sealed to look like spare tires in seven new Fusions from Mexico, Dilworth Police Chief Ty Sharpe said. At the Arizona-Sonora border in May 2015, the Mexican military found 430 pounds of marijuana in the spare-tire spaces of 14 new cars inside a rail car in Nogales, Sonora."

It's a feature being offered with the new model year.  It's part of their high end package.  ;)

Good bust.

Keeping out tainted cartel weed is good for American growers.

Cartel weed isn't needed, isn't wanted and will soon be relegated to the dirty back alleys and airport bars where it belongs.

But who was supposed to off-load it from the individual cars?? Who was the intended recipient? And where? For all the  planning and work that went into "packing" these cars, there has to be an equal plan to unpack them.
