Used Car Buyer Finds Cocaine In Car
Every car owner aspires to own the top-of-the-line model, one that comes with options the neighbors don’t have.
But few wish for the extras a California man found in his used minivan. San Jose, Calif., psychologist Charles Preston found $500,000 worth of cocaine hidden in the door panels of his used Chrysler Town & Country 15 months after he bought the car, when his car was in the shop having its brakes examined, the Mercury News reported.
The vehicle, which Preston purchased for $14,000 from Thrifty Car Sales in Santa Clara, Calif., had defective windows. That’s because the cocaine was in the way, according to the Mercury News.
During the car’s time in the shop, a manager at San Jose’s DHT Collision & Service Center noticed something was wrong with the insulation in the window panel. It turned out to be the drugs wrapped in cellophane.
