Carlos Valenzuela was driving around Texas the other day, minding his own business, when he forgot to signal a turn at an intersection. For this oversight, he was pulled over, and probably would have got off with a warning/ticket if he hadn’t, you know, had three enormous bricks of cocaine inside his car. Two of them hidden inside an Xbox 360 console.
Upon being pulled over, police from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office noticed he was very nervous, and also kept looking at a bag on the seat next to him. So they searched the car and found inside the bag “one brick-like bundle wrapped in brown tape”. Also inside the bag was an Xbox 360.
Calling in sniffer dogs, who reacted to the console, they pried it open to find two more bricks of cocaine stashed inside.
In all, he was caught with 1.8kg of cocaine, and has been charged with “manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance”.
Weird he went to all the trouble of hiding two of them inside a console then left the other one in packaging that doesn’t exactly need a sniffer dog to tell you it’s full of drugs.
