ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies found nearly a ton of pot at a home, thanks to a toddler and an OnStar in-vehicle safety and security system.
The Albuquerque Journal reported Friday that a 2-year-old boy who was locked in his father's Cadillac Escalade in southeast Albuquerque pushed the OnStar button in the car for help. The device not only can guide a motorist to a location, it can also unlock doors and call for help.
Officials responded to the OnStar alert, and when deputies arrived, they became suspicious when they found a large trailer in the garage.
Inside the trailer, deputies found 1,700 pounds of marijuana worth more than a half-million dollars.
Four men were arrested and are now in federal custody on drug trafficking charges, deputies said.
