ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies have made one of the biggest drug busts in the department’s history.

It all started with a call made Wednesday night to OnStar by a toddler who was locked inside a Cadillac Escalade, according to a copyright story in the Albuquerque Journal.

When deputies went to rescue the boy, they found him inside the vehicle and his father, Alfredo Ibarra, 25, outside trying to coach his son to open a door.

The security service eventually unlocked the doors, freeing the boy.

Deputies became suspicious of a new trailer nearby. Inside, they found 1,700 pounds of marijuana, worth an estimated $500,000.

Authorities said the boy’s father, along with 25-year-old Eric Aniles, 52-year-old Jimmy Hogan and 23-year-old Sean Daly are in federal custody on drug trafficking charges.
:rofl:

Sounds to me like they got owned by a 3 year old.

I wonder what sucks more... getting screwed over by the over-the-top car you bought, or your 3 year old son?

How does OnStar make a car "over-the-top?" :confused: You can get it on pretty much any car available today and it doesn't even cost that much.

Some guy got a DUI around here, for wrecking his Caddy in his yard, and walking into his house, not reporting it. The airbags went off, OnStar was notified, OnStar called the cops, man gets arrested. WEEEEEE

To my knowledge,OnStar is only offered in GM cars.

That is crazy though. I'm not really too sure how the OnStar system works,somehow it seems that it might infringe on ones privacy. IMO.

That makes up "pretty much" all of the most common cars on the market today.

I'm sure at some point in the future it will be a standard to monitor vehicular activities. All things concerning safety or what is otherwise concidered to be unordinary will,I'm sure,set off a little "He's fuct" alarm. What I'm not sure of is;how sensitive is the monitoring where tracking,and simple detection are concerned?

I think they only do that for heavier drugs(cocaine, crack, etc..). I wish i was the cop that found that weed, because they would be a few pounds short.
