POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (KFVS/CNN) - Ever wonder what $150,000 worth of cocaine looks like? Check out the video above.

It was found by workers at a Missouri repair shop when they took a panel off a car door.

Police believe the door came from an SUV that was impounded by authorities in Texas.

Danny Whiteley, Chief of the Poplar Bluff Police Department, says it wasn't much of a bust, just luck.

"Well as would be anything if you found a 150,000 dollars you would kinda get a little excited. Yes, I think that was a shock," said Chief Whiteley. "I would say this is lucky on our part and bad luck on who you belonged to part. Somebody is in deep do-do on losing that kind of amount."

Police in Missouri are now in touch with Texas officials to see if they can track down who is responsible for the drugs.
