MEXICO CITY (AP) - Police at a Mexican seaport say they have
found a pickup truck with body panels and a bumper made from
fiberglass - and cocaine.
The Attorney General's Office says a trained dog picked up the
scent of drugs during an inspection of a shipping container sent
Officials in the port of Manzanillo dismantled parts of a 1990
pickup truck inside the container and found that its rear bumper
and some of its body panels appeared to be made from pressed
cocaine base coated in fiberglass.
The office said in a statement Thursday that the cocaine-mix
parts weighed 164 pounds (74 kilograms). No charges have yet been
brought in the case.
