Carlos Valenzuela, 42, was visibly nervous when police pulled his car over in West Texas. He repeatedly glanced at a duffel bag on the passenger seat of his Mercedes. Upon finding a block of cocaine in the bag El Paso County Sheriffs' Office called in a K-9 unit that quickly found two additional blocks of cocaine within an Xbox 360.
Close to four pounds of cocaine was seized from the vehicle and Valenzuela was arrested and charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and placed on a $25,000 bond. I wonder if the Xbox 360 is the preferred console for drug smuggling or if the PS3 also has a slice of the market.
