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

Authorities say $1 million worth of marijuana was discovered in a number of Ford Fusions.

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.

"Clearly, something went wrong", Balzano said.

The dealership began discovering the bundles between July 7 and July 11 in half-moon shaped bundles mounted into the wheel wells for the spare tires in the trunks of the new Fusions. In total, marijuana was found in 15 cars in four counties in Ohio, Balzano said, and a couple even surfaced in Pennsylvania.

Congratulations, Mexican smugglers! You finally found a way to make the Ford Fusion interesting, albeit in the most illegal way ever.

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

Dealership employees probably got suspicious when they discovered that the cars had no spare tires, but instead rounded packages crammed with marijuana.

No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing.

It's said that the new Ford Fusion has good space, but this likely isn't what the company had in mind.

Ford said they confirmed, "this is not happening at our plant or at our internal shipping yards".

The marijuana-laden vehicles were transported to the USA and on to Lordstown, Ohio, via CSX railways.

A CSX spokesman told CNN that the company is "providing all the support we can to the agencies who are investigating this serious crime and will continue to do so".
