Truck parts were made of cocaine

February 13, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police at a Mexican seaport said they had found a pickup truck with body panels and a rear bumper made from pressed cocaine coated in fiberglass.

The attorney general's office said a trained dog picked up the scent of drugs during an inspection of a shipping container sent from Colombia. Officials in the port of Manzanillo dismantled parts of a 1990 pickup truck inside the container and found the coated drugs.
