Man finds Tony Montana’s Van

Every car owner aspires to own the top-of-the-line model, one that comes with options the neighbors don’t have. Few wish for the extras a California man found in his used minivan. San Jose, Calif., psychologist Charles Preston found $500,000 worth of cocaine hidden in the door panels of his used Chrysler Town & Country 15 months after he bought the car, when his car was in the shop having its brakes examined. The vehicle, which Preston purchased for $14,000 from Thrifty Car Sales in Santa Clara, Calif., had defective windows. That’s because the cocaine was in the way. During the car’s time in the shop, a manager at San Jose’s DHT Collision & Service Center noticed something was wrong with the insulation in the window panel. It turned out to be the drugs wrapped in cellophane. The cops confiscated the drugs hidden in the window panels along with the packages found in the wheel wells. Police told him to get rid of the car, fast, in case the drug runners were still looking for it. He’s not driving it anymore. The owner of Thrifty Car Sales originally agreed to buy back the van for $4,000 less than Preston already paid, but ultimately decided to replace Preston’s vehicle with a drug-free ride.
