Police find pound of cocaine in a car owned by 82-year old woman after she brings it in to be serviced
Idaho Falls Police took a report Tuesday morning of more than a pound of cocaine found inside the engine compartment of an 82-year-old woman’s car being serviced at B.A. Wackerli on North Holmes.
Police believe it’s likely the cocaine was hidden in the car by an unknown person prior to it being purchased by the woman 11 years ago. The car was a former rental.
According to the reports, officers were contacted by a mechanic at Wackerli’s around 10:49 a.m. about a suspicious package wrapped in black electrical tape found in front of the motor by the radiator.
Police field tested the substance and confirmed it to be cocaine. It weighed 1.16 pounds.
