Ohio driver finds $12,000 stash of marijuana in spare tire
CLEVELAND - An Ohio woman took the car she bought seven months ago to a dealership to replace a flat tire this week and learned she has been driving around with eight pounds of marijuana in the spare.
The car was purchased new in August.
Cavanaugh said the woman has not been charged with any crime, and investigators were trying to trace the marijuana back to parts suppliers or vehicle transport firms.
Cavanaugh said this case was not the first time marijuana has been found in unexpected places, including tires and hidden compartments.
"I'm sure it is not the only vehicle out there with this," Cavanaugh said.
