Man buys car with heroin hidden in a compartment

Man buys car with heroin hidden in a compartment


PICTURE OF THE THIEF TAKING A WREATH OFF THE DOOR. HE HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. USED CARS SOMETIMES COME WITH UNPLEASANT SURPRISES, THINGS LIKE ODD SMELLS, SQUEAKY BRAKES AND DENTS THAT WENT UNNOTICED UNTIL YOU PULLED OFF THE LOT. AS JOHN FROM OUR SISTER STATION IN CLEVELAND TELLS US, WHAT ONE OHIO MAN FOUND WRONG WITH HIS CAR MAKES THE OTHER THINGS SEEM SMALL. FOR TWO WEEKS, HE WAS DRIVING THIS JETTA ALL AROUND THE TRI-STATE. WENT TO DINNER ONE NIGHT, THE CAR STARTED MAKING A STRANGE NOISE. Reporter: THE MAN ASKED US TO HIDE HIS IDENTITY. I COULD TELL IT WAS A LOCKING MECHANISM SO I POPPED IT WITH A SCREWDRIVER AND THE SEAT OPENED UP. Reporter: THAT COMPARTMENT WAS EMPTY BUT ON THE DRIVER’S SIDE. WE POPPED IT OPEN AND THAT’S WHERE WE FOUND HEROIN. POLICE PEG THE STREET VALUE AT $130,000. I FOUND THEIR DRUGS, I GAVE THEIR DRUGS TO THE POLICE AND I MEAN, THEY DON’T MESS AROUND. THAT VOLKSWAGEN WAS STOPPED IN FEBRUARY 65 MILES UP THE ROAD. IT WAS BEING DRIVEN BY THIS GUY, A FORMER MEXICAN HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICER. ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS, THE CARTEL THREATENED TO KILL HIS FAMILY IF HE DIDN’T HAUL HEROIN ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THE CAR WAS EVENTUALLY RELEASED, WOUND UP IN AN IMPOUND LOT AND LATER AT AN AUCTION. THAT’S HOW IT WAS SOLD. IT’S PROBABLY MORE COMMON THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT DOESMISS, YOU KNOW, CASH OR DRUGS IN VEHICLES JUST BASED ON THE WAY THINGS ARE HIDDEN. Reporter: HE WASN’T INVOLVED IN THE CASE OR THAT FEBRUARY STOP BUT ADMITS COMPARTMENTS BUILT BY THE CARTEL ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE COMPLEX. THE ONLY PERSON THAT MAY KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO OPERATE THE TRAP OR WHERE THE TRAP IS IS THE PERSON WHO BUILT IT. Reporter: IN A STATEMENT, I WAS TOLD A K-9 WAS USED IN THAT STOP AND AFTER AN INITIAL DISCOVERY, THE ENTIRE CAR WAS SEARCHED BUT NOTHING ELSE WAS FOUND, THAT IS UNTIL EIGHT MONTHS LATER. WALKING ON THE LOT AT A CAR DEALERSHIP, WOULD YOU HAVE EVER THOUGHT IN A MILLION YEARS THAT YOU WOULD BE PURCHASING A CARTEL CAR? ABSOLUTELY NOT. AS FOR THE CAR, THE DEALER

  1. 10 mins after the cops got the herion they sold it back in the black communitys I would've personally burned it so I know for sure nobody gets it

  2. he sure told the cops wheres his $130.000 for finding there drugs & if they say not giving the money tell them will i take the drugs back & just sell it unless i get the money

  3. "he want's to keep his name hidden"
    *news anchor: Well that's how McClausty got the car, at the auction at this address"

  4. If that was me that found that the bonuses in that car would have been sold and I would have kept all the money but then again I know the right homies because in the neighborhood I live in the local gang members run the neighborhood the cops only run their mouth and they can only back up a toilet bowl and then nothing else this had to been a white boy because white people ain't nothing but Big Mouth cop callers just like all white people are

  5. He lied, that's an excuse they use if they get caught. He gets paid well. I know people in the drug industry, that's why.

  6. God puts things in front of you for a reason, what an idiot. I would of been 130,000 richer. Does anyone know where he bought this car ? I’m in the market for anything a cartel owned.

  7. Police had one job!
    They should all be charged with attempted murder.
    Their to busy sniffing powered donuts off each others asses.

  8. U found a brick of herion and called the cops???? Come on man we all know someone who can make that disappear. That was a huge come up

  9. FIRST MISTAKE. Saying something . You could payed off that piece of shit German car and got real reliable car. Mor money in there to buy your self a high class car haha

  10. Yeah bullshit, what's the real story… I'm thinking it's not so oh so good, " look what I found I want to remain annonmymous and not be seen, well that's screwed now. Oh yeah trust the pokice, like it won't be back on steer in a few days, dirty arses. He just is so sweet, why not just return it. Well, I get it your not really to smart as you think huh? Crazy for sure

  11. You couldn't get something better than a cardboard backdrop and a printed out sheet of paper? You wrote his name by hand, this can't be real

  12. So the car was def shit and already demolished by cops. The dealer is very scummy and the car was prob a salvage title also.

  13. Just like these dummy's that find a big bag full of money somewhere and turn it into the police… How stupid is that???

  14. If it was actually drugs from the cartels I know exactly who you are blurring your face isn't going to help anything. Remember United States government funds the Mexican cartels how else do you think the drugs get into this. country

  15. What happened to Wolf Krueger ?? 🤔😭 If this is a true story & not made up for ratings than This was bad journalism all across the board. They put several ppls lives at risk for entertainment (both former car owners & the auto auction staff at the location) #Shameful

  16. what if a cop pulled over the guy that bought the car and find the drugs? they woulnt belived him that he didnt know and lock his ass up.

  17. I am surprised the police didn't arrest him when he showed it them.
    They mostly do in these situations.

  18. Police stop searching when they find the first snd don't continue to clear the rest.
    Like TSA at the airport are so concerned with a bottle of water or shamoo, they don't see the drugs.
    The most obvious first.
