Mechanic finds more than a pound of cocaine in 82-year-old woman's car

An Idaho mechanic got a shock Wednesday when he discovered over a pound of cocaine in an 82-year-old woman's car, Q13 Fox reports.

The mechanic reportedly was servicing the car when he found a "suspicious" package wrapped in black electrical tape inside the car's motor near the radiator.

Lab tests confirmed the substance inside the package was cocaine. The package contained a little over a pound of the drug.

The Idaho Falls Police Department say they believe the cocaine may have been placed in the car by a previous owner. They say the elderly woman has owned the car for 11 years and before that it was a rental car.
