IDAHO FALLS -- Police in Idaho Falls say a mechanic found just over a pound of cocaine in the engine compartment of an 82-year-old woman's car.

The cocaine, with an estimated street value of $20,000, was wrapped in black electrical tape. It was found Tuesday morning.

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.
