FedEx delivery trucks have been used more than once on the "cloned" vehicle circuit. In one incident in January 2004, Arizona public safety officials stopped a FedEx delivery vehicle driven by a man wearing authentic-looking FedEx jacket and pants. The driver stated he was paid $500 to drive the van to an Ajo, Ariz. address, which led official to believe it would be used for drug trafficking.

Missouri Highway Patrol also nabbed a FedEx delivery vehicle parked at a local store in February 2005. Officers contacted the driver and seized 1,300 pounds of marijuana hidden inside U-Haul boxes. The van's registration traced back to a Houston, Texas address. (Florida Department of Law Enforcement)
