A cocaine pipe concealed in the tires of a 8×8 Spanish Epsilon support truck belonging to the Epsilon team. As Opposite Lock author BORSUQ noted in his book, “The Driver,” “two members of the Epsilon team, a seasoned veteran and a new member, were arrested in France shortly after the discovery of cocaine in their car. They are both Spanish citizens who had served as drivers for several different teams.
Another interesting thing that was noticed about this case is that the vehicle's tires were removed. If one were to assume that they were only removing the vehicle's bodywork, it would seem reasonable to assume that they might have removed the tires. This is a reasonable assumption. However, the two passengers were not arrested, although they were taken to a prison in Nice and are both charged with drug trafficking and conspiracy.
Although a Dakar support truck was used by the two suspects, it is believed that the cocaine found in the truck may be from Brazil, although it is unknown where the truck actually came from. The suspects were released on bail of twenty thousand pounds or less and will appear at a Madrid court date for their trial later this month.
In addition to being a suspect for drug trafficking and possession of illegal drugs, the suspect's support truck was also used for a number of other reasons such as a personal car hire service. It is thought that a third party hired them for this purpose and they were using it in order to travel between countries.
This may be the perfect example of what can go wrong when using these types of support trucks. Not only do they pose a danger to others on the road but they also pose a threat to the public and to themselves. This is why the use of such vehicles should be limited or prohibited.
Dakar's involvement in this matter is still unclear, although a statement was released stating that the Dakar truck was used only for the transportation of a client. It is expected that the case will be resolved in time and that the suspect will not be caught again.
While it is difficult to find support trucks that fit this description, it is possible. When a company is involved in an accident, sometimes, one or more of their vehicles is damaged. Sometimes they are damaged in such a way as to allow an opportunity for someone to transport drugs or weapons to them.
However, most companies will have some type of security system or surveillance camera installed in order to prevent this type of situation. This type of security system can help stop the possibility of this occurring.
If you were to go to an accident scene, be sure that you were not using one of these vehicles, as even if you have only a small quantity of cocaine, it is illegal to drive. The use of a drug-filled vehicle is a clear no-no.
