IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Police in Idaho Falls say a mechanic found more than a pound of cocaine in the engine compartment of an 82-year-old woman's car.

The cocaine was wrapped in black electrical tape and was found Tuesday morning. The package weighed 1.16 pounds.

Officers say it's likely the cocaine was hidden in the car by someone before the woman bought it. The car was a former rental.
