This Ford F-150 Driver Totally Blows it!

Customs and Border Patrol managed to seize more than half-a-million dollars in cocaine hidden inside a Ford F-150 at the San Clemente, California border crossing.

While most sizable drug busts feature some sort of clever hiding passage or smuggling technique, the 23-year old driver of the purple Ford F-150 simply stuffed the packaged cocaine into the truck’s exhaust system.

Now, while I’m not an expert, I can only imagine that stuffing¬†cocaine or any other legal or illegal substance inside a hot canister which exudes fumes, may not be the most concealed way to smuggle anything. The simple fact that I’m writing about this,¬†proves so.

The discovery happened when the young and silly driver was flagged for a K-9 unit check of the Ford’s undercarriage, and the rest is history. In total, 33.2 pounds of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $530,000 dollars were seized, and a very young man went to jail. Way to go Customs and Border Patrol, now you can afford more Ford Raptors!

Main takeaway: Don’t trust someone who drives a purple truck.
