A man from California was stunned to see what a previous owner of his minivan apparently left behind: $500,000 worth of cocaine jammed in the door panels.
San Jose psychologist Charles Preston says the cellophane-wrapped cocaine was found when he took the van to a mechanic. Police were immediately notified.
Preston says that he noticed the driver’s side window couldn’t go down all the way, but he figured he would live with it because the Ton and Country van had a good air conditioning system.
Preston is reported to have paid $14,000 to Thrifty Car Sales in Santa Clara for the 2008 white van in May 2010.
