A truck driver and his wife get a room at the Best Western Inn in Graham, NC.  Then suddenly out of nowhere, the truck driver, who may have been suspicious about the towns' narcotic measurement like name, shakes an unsuspecting chair in the room like a polaroid picture. Low and behold, a couple pounds of cocaine fall out.

Thinking he may have found actual coke, he calls police, who confirm his suspicions.  As the police officers and the trucker continue to search the room, the trucker again violently shakes the chair, and another couple pounds of cocaine fall out.

Police Chief Wiggam said of the incident:

"When you live in Graham, you have to expect of find blow all over the place, our citizens, and visitors alike, have a nose for this stuff.  We are constantly vigilant when it comes to narcotics here in Graham."

The real life Graham police officers are still looking for the perps, and have announced that the trucker and his wife are not suspects.
