You might hold off on going through the car wash
I was reading an offense report for a case down in South Texas the other day in which an ordinary traffic stop turned into an arrest for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. Among the "suspicious" behaviors that led the state trooper to believe the motorist was involved in some type of criminal activity was this gem:
"The vehicle appeared to be freshly cleaned and detailed."
So, if you're traveling down to the Valley, hold off on washing that car.
