$1 MILLION WORTH OF WEED FOUND IN FORD FUSIONS...Date: 2017-07-20
Over in the United States, authorities have seized $1 million worth of marijuana that was found hidden in a number of Mexican-made Ford Fusions sitting at an Ohio dealership.
The agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Silver Balzano says that the Fords were built at the company's factory in Sonora and shipped by rail to Ohio. Investigators are still looking into who packed the weed into the cars and who the intended recipient was. Each of the marijuana packages weighed roughly 32 lbs and were found in 15 different Ford Fusions in Ohio and a couple in Pennsylvania.
This is not the first time this has happened, in February and March approximately 1,100 lbs of marijuana was found in Mexican-built Ford Fusion models at a railroad holding in Minnesota. Ford has claimed that they are working with the FBI and Customs to investigate the trafficking.
