Cocaine Found Stashed in Gas Tank of Used Car

From Times Wire Reports

A reliable family car suddenly developed a tendency to lose power, leading to the discovery that it had been driven for years with two bricks of cocaine stashed in the gas tank.

A Slidell family had bought the 1996 Toyota Camry from a used car lot in 1997.

When the car started losing speed after years of good service, it was taken to a mechanic, who discovered two bricks of cocaine. The wrapping had apparently come loose recently.
