The family bought a Toyota Sienna at a US government auction for $3,900 in February 2012 in McAllen, Texas. In November last year , their son Sergio Torres Duarte (18) and his friend Julio Cesar Moreno (19) took the vehicle to a soccer match and got stopped by the police for a routine check.

The two teenagers got stunned when the police officers discovered a 2.2 lb (1 kg) cocaine package beneath their vehicle dashboard. Being unable to explain they were handcuffed and are still in jail fighting against drug trafficking charges.

Torres Duarte’s father, Sergio, started his own research to find out what happened and he recently discovered that the vehicle was confiscated after US custom agents found five bundles of cocaine in it back in 2011.

All the packages found were labeled “Good” with a black marker, just like the pack found recently under the dashboard. US officials recognized they might have missed that one.
