A cache à la MacGyver.
This is what French customs officers discovered on April 22, 2021 during an arrest on the A31 motorway.
Installed in the back of a Kia Sportage, in place of the spare wheel, the cover is opened by a sophisticated electromagnetic mechanism.
It involves activating the rear windscreen de-icing button, engine running.
Followed by the affixing of two magnets to a wiring under the carpet at the foot of the left rear passenger seat.
Inside, packaged in heat-sealed transparent bags: more than 38 kg of ketamine and amphetamines.
