Agents seize 480 pounds of pot shipped from Mexico to Warren area

Fords on a dealership lot.

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.

With the cooperation of Ford Motor Company, agents found that the Fusions were manufactured in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, shipped into the USA through Arizona and eventually Northeast Ohio by train until they were unloaded in Trumbull County.

This is not the first time something like this has happened.

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

"Since the vehicles came from Mexico, they believed someone in Mexico placed the marijuana in those vehicles", the St. Paul police officer wrote.

Investigators also determined 15 new Ford Fusions on a rail auto had their spare tires removed and were replaced with compressed packages of marijuana resembling a tire, the release says. A Fiesta owner would be far more likely to just quietly keep the find of the century in his rear trunk and smoke it with his buddies without ever calling the authorities.

Pot-carrying Fusions have also been found in the Phoenix area in addition to Minnesota and Ohio.

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

Word on the street is the new Ford Fusions are dope - but not in the way you think. "We are working with the FBI and Customs on an extensive investigation". The official auto of "don't tell my grandson about this".
