State Lawmakers Consider Making Secret Compartments Illegal

Tennessee state lawmakers are considering making secret compartments in vehicles illegal.

The issue was renewed this weekend when drug task force agents found $600,000 worth of cocaine in a secret compartment, and agents say they’ve never seen a hiding place like this before.

A pen with a magnet inside was placed by a magnet in the dashboard to pop open a secret compartment in the back. Inside, agents found 5 kilos of cocaine.

The couple in the car are in jail on drug charges.
