An California man received quite the surprise when he discovered the used mini-van he’d bought for $14,000 was holding $500,000 worth of cocaine.

Charles Preston of San Jose had noticed that the driver’s side window didn’t close all the way when he first bought the car. He decided he could live with the malfunction because the mini-van had “a good air-conditioning system.”

When Preston brought his van to a local mechanic to work on the brakes over a year later he finally found the car’s best hidden feature – 14 large packages of cocaine hidden in the doors. A police search of the vehicle turned up an additional five packages contained within the wheels.

In other unrelated news, Lindsay Lohan was seen roaming around Southern California buying every minivan up for sale.
