(NBC San Diego)


Drug smugglers are always looking for new ways of moving their products across borders. One woman in San Diego unwittingly became part of their latest ploy for moving large quantities of marijuana across the border between Mexico and the United States.

According to NBC San Diego, a 33-year-old woman drove from her home in Mexico to her job in San Diego early Friday morning. While sitting in her car two unknown males approached and began removing something from the undercarriage. When they realized she was still in the car the men ran back to their own vehicle and drove away.

The woman contacted police who found six packages containing 30 pounds of marijuana held in place with strong magnets. The drugs had been fixed to her car without her knowledge. No arrests have been made and police say the investigation is still ongoing.

      Wow these guys are getting pretty resourceful. Those magnets arent normal magnets. They can only be found in PC hard drives. Pretty smart if they know that there are magnets in hard drives; powerful ones at that.

        You can say that again about the magnets in the hard drive; I took some out of my old computer and made the mistake of putting them in my pocket. I am still stuck to this metal chair. Need bathroom break NOW!

      Legalize and kiss these cartels goodbye, simple as that.

      If she did not call the Police the drug dealers would have hunted her down and probably killd her. This way at least they know she dose not have it.

      Good job guys, you just got this woman killed. You do realize that these people obviously know where she lives and that she commutes to the US daily and they are going to want reimbursement for their lost product. Not that 30 lbs of Mexican brick is worth that much anyway, it's mostly garbage that comes out of Mexico and no self respecting smoker would ever smoke the stuff. That's why I always crack up laughing when they give out these bloated valuation numbers when they confiscate stuff coming across the border. What a waste of time & effort, "The Evil Weed", oh no! We really just need to legalize the stuff and it will cut the legs right out from under the cartels because no one wants the dirt that they produce if it can be avoided. The funny thing is that the amount of pot coming into this country from Canada easily rivals that of Mexico, the only difference is that the bulk value of what comes from Canada on a yearly basis is probably easily 10-20 times more than the value of the dirt coming from Mexico. Nobody ever mentions Canada, we're so busy with Mexico when really it's all just a insanely massive waste of time, money & effort that could all be applied elsewhere and have a much greater impact.

      All the people who were stoners when I was growing up are now all "brain dead" losers. Glad I only blow the froth off a few every now and then.

        Typical response to justify being a drunk. All of the "stoners" I knew/know hold very good jobs, have wonderful families, never cause any vehicular accidents like those that "blow the froth off a few", and have zero violence inside their homes from idiots that can't hold their liquor.

          Dont worry Vace Sue is either ignorant or uneducated or both. Its funny how the supposed stupid pot smokers are uniting to finally do what is right. The users of other drugs such as Tobacco, Alcohol and Caffeine will learn they have been wrong for a long time. Good Luck Sue

      Yeah, right. What is your boyfriends name agai...Jose?
      • 2 Years Ago
      Then 100 Americans go out looking to buy the pot? It is not as if they are bringing something over here that isn't in high demand! While I am not condoning this activity, I am only being fair in my assessment, we always look at the illegals entering our country with drugs as the problem, but our people are desperately begging them to bring it over here? Stop begging for it!
        • 2 Years Ago
        There is no one begging them to bring into the country. They bring into the country because they can make a lot of money. Do you mean there is is big demand in this country and they take an advantage of the demand? I doubt if people are begging them.
