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

Officials found 400 pounds of marijuana inside 15 Ford Fusions that had been delivered to dealerships in Northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania. The cars were manufactured in Sonora Mexico crossed the border through Arizona and had all gone through a rail yar

Portage County Sheriff David Doak says the department's Drug Task Force was called to a local vehicle dealership, when employees found a package of marijuana hidden in the trunk of a new Ford Fusion. Authorities are now looking into just how these tires were substituted for grass along the production line or in transit - and who failed to pick them all up. "Generally speaking, they could take it off anywhere else along the way".

The pot was found stashed in the wheel wells for the vehicles' spare tires at a dealership in Youngstown between July 7 and July 11, Balzano said.

Each wheel found inside the Fusions weighed 14.5 kilos, and this recent discovery yielded a total of 15 cars loaded with the odd spares in OH alone.

Authorities say more than 400 pounds (181 kilograms) of marijuana has been found in 15 new cars made in Mexico and shipped to OH and Pennsylvania to sell.

It's not the first time marijuana was found hidden in cars shipped from Mexico, Balzano said.
