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.
