Brand new Ford Fusions loaded with $1 million worth of Marijuana

Authorities are looking into how marijuana worth $1 million was hidden in the trunks of brand new, Mexican-made Ford Fusions at a dealership in OH, according to Silverio Balzano, agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Youngstown office.

Agents traced the auto back to a Warren area rail yard, where the vehicle was unloaded from a train, along with fourteen other Fords. Authorities are now looking into just how these tires were substituted for grass along the production line or in transit - and who failed to pick them all up.

"Clearly, something went wrong", Balzano said. Each half-moon shaped container of pressed marijuana had been concealed in spare tire compartment in the car's trunks, according to Bob Balzano of the DEA.

Each of the wheels weighed approximately 14.5 kilos, or almost 32 pounds.

Artificial sweetners may lead to weight gain
Both types of studies have their pluses and limitations. "I used to be a person who put Splenda in my coffee every day", she says. But that's a very different message than outright recommending sweeteners for weight loss or better health, she says.

The Portage County Drug Task Force and agents from the Youngstown DEA office recovered more than $1 million of marijuana this week stuffed in new Ford Fusions shipped from Mexico to Northeast Ohio.

A Drug Enforcement Administration agent tells The Vindicator that marijuana was found in April in new cars shipped from Mexico to Minnesota.

The sheriff said investigators, with the assistance of Ford Motor Company, were able to determine the cars were manufactured in Mexico and entered the USA crossing the Mexican border into Arizona, making their way to Northeast Ohio.

"We're aware of the situation and are taking it very seriously", said a Ford Motor Company spokesman. "We have confirmed that this is not happening at our plant or at our internal shipping yards".
