Centre County, PA – A nationwide story is making its way into Pennsylvania in Centre County. Several shipments of vehicles coming from an assembly plant in Mexico were found to have marijuana hidden inside them.
Police recently found 25 pounds of marijuana in the spare tire compartment of a vehicle that was shipped to a dealership near State College. At least 13 other cars throughout the United States were found with similar drug packages.
Police say this was likely a one-time incident. They warn the cartels are getting more creative with the way that they transport drugs into the country. The packages were likely supposed to be picked up by another drug runner in the United States before the vehicle even reached the lot in State College.
