Cocaine Car

Cocaine, not octane, was vehicle's problem

The history of a used car could lead to legal problems for a previous owner. A Slidell, Louisiana, family bought their 1996 Toyota Camry in 1997 and the vehicle ran fine until last week. That's when the owners started noticing a loss of power in the vehicle. The mechanic hired to look into the problem found two bricks of cocaine in the gas tank. The drugs were wrapped around the vehicle's fuel line. Local authorities say the car's current owners are not involved in drug trafficking. They're checking the vehicle's ownership records to determine who might have owned the drugs.
