POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. - A southeast Missouri automotive repair shop had an unexpected find with the SUV door it bought from a Texas salvage yard - cocaine hidden inside the door with a street value of $150,000.

The Poplar Bluff Daily American Republic reports that authorities believe the six pounds of cocaine arrived in Missouri last week by mistake.

Poplar Bluff Police Chief Danny Whiteley says the door apparently came from an SUV that wrecked in the Dallas area, was impounded by police and never claimed. It ended up in a Dallas salvage yard.

A Poplar Bluff repair shop had the door ordered. When it arrived Wednesday, workers found powder cocaine tucked inside five plastic storage containers inside the door.

An investigation is under way to try and trace the source of the drug.
