Beware of the suspicious package fixed to your vehicle, because it just might contain several pounds of marijuana. A 33-year-old resident of Mexico who just so happens to work in San Diego, CA says two men walked up to her vehicle around 4 a.m. Friday morning and began doing some very suspicious things to her car's undercarriage. 

The woman scared the hell out of the men, who fled at the sight of her. When police finally arrived at the scene, they found six packages attached to the car's undercarriage using magnets. Thirty pounds of marijuana was found inside of the packages.

Luckily for the woman, authorities are convinced that she didn't know there was a bunch of weed fastened to her car as she drove across the U.S.Mexico Border. Meanwhile, police are still on the hunt for the men who applied the weed to her vehicle . 

The best way to avoid this? There probably isn't one, but just keep your eyes open and make sure nobody shady approaches your vehicle when you're about to cross the border. You might not be as lucky as this woman.
