Dallas Police: Hey! How’d that get in there?

The BBC has reported that fifty pounds of cocaine were discovered hidden in a secret, hydraulic compartment on a police cruiser. The drug was found by an undercover agent who was cleaning the vehicle. The Dallas Police Department has cooked up some story about the car being “seized at a crime scene” in early ’08 and searched by a narcotics squad that was apparently too incompetent to realize it contained hidden compartments.

I’m not sure which is worse, the ineptitude of the searchers, or the pointlesness of this story…
