However when an officer searched the car and noticed that a spare tire in the boot of the car had hard spots and wasn’t the usual weight, he was detained and 21 kilos of meth were said to have been found

A further inspection later on saw 11 more packages found in the panels of the car. I’m his defence, he said he owned the car but had traded it away three months ago to an unnamed person – and then got it back about a month ago.
