  1. Someone is going to be very “unhappy” that they lost a half a million dollars.
    Legally, the female driving the car will be charged, (driver get’s “hit” with all charges-as operator of the vehicle.) The sad thing is the females may be telling the TRUTH. Many organized crime and drug dealers use “mules” to move their stuff around. Give them $400 gas & toll money, and when they deliver the car, another $500 a piece. Happened all the time in Florida.

    1. You would think the drug dealers would hide it better.
