Normally don't find this in a used police car

A Rhode Island man got more than he bargained for when he bought a used police cruiser at auction.

Kevin Blais bought the 2004 Ford Crown Victoria in an online auction from the Hartford, Connecticut, public works department.

He was cleaning it last week when he noticed a cracked area on the one-piece molded seat assembly.

When he removed the seat assembly to clean the floor, he found a plastic bag full of cocaine.

Blais thinks that a suspect stuffed the drugs through the crack to prevent police from finding them.

Hartford police were apologetic when he told them of the discovery.
