Onstar Busts Unsuspecting Subscriber
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - March 2, 2006 -- Onstar: "Always there, always ready." But for one Florida man, the GM vehicle communications system was a little too ready.
Ralph Gomez was busted after showing off the Onstar system in his Cadillac Escalade.
According to authorities, Gomez had the volume turned down so he couldn't hear the Onstar operator. When there was no response, Onstar contacted police.
Tom Clements, a spokesman for the St. Augustine Police Department, says when officers got to Gomez they could see there wasn't a problem. But Clements says officers saw cocaine clearly visible on the SUV's center console.
Gomez was jailed on 15-thousand dollars bond and his Escalade was seized, too.
