A Ford dealership in Youngstown found the marijuana motherlode in its new Fusions between July 7 and 11.

One recent shipment of brand-new Ford Fusions built at Ford's Hermosillo plant came packed with a toasty $1 million worth of marijuana.

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and members of the Portage County Drug Task Force have seized more than 400 pounds of marijuana shipped from Mexico to Northeast Ohio hidden in new Ford Fusion vehicles.

When all was said and done, the drugs were found in 15 cars in four counties in OH, and a few even made their way to Pennsylvania. Eventually, marijuana was found in 15 cars in four OH counties.

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.

"The officer advised me this was an ongoing problem for them".

Look, cartels: think this through.

Authorities indicate that similar cases involving "420'd" Ford Fusions have also recently been identified in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, as well as in Phoenix. 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. "We are working with the FBI and Customs on an extensive investigation".

A CSX spokesman told CNN that the company is "providing all the support we can to the agencies who are investigating this serious crime and will continue to do so". "We have confirmed that this is not happening at our plant or at our internal shipping yards". The official vehicle of "don't tell my grandson about this".
