Yes, we know the ads are for an F-150. Work with us, people.
Those Ford truck ads with Denis Leary shticking his way through the vehicle's high points so far have not included one enticement: "Great for carrying LIQUID METH." (We see the "LIQUID METH" as the words emblazoned on screen as he growls them.)

Enrique Alvaraez-Soria, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, didn't need the sales pitch, though. He already knew about the truck's convenient drug-carrying properties.

Alvaraez-Soria, 41, entered a guilty plea in Houston to transporting liquid meth from Mexico in one of a Ford F-250's two fuel tanks.

In October DEA agents got a tip that such a vehicle would be carrying the drug across the border. Agents intercepted it, then took over the delivery duties to a farm in Montgomery County.

"On Oct. 28, 2011, agents observed Alvarez-Soria arrive at the ranch, remove some red colored gas cans from the vehicle he was driving and siphon the liquid methamphetamine from the front fuel tank of the Ford F-250 and into the red gas cans," the U.S. Attorney's Office says. "Subsequently, officers stopped him and discovered the liquid methamphetamine and suspected acetone, mixing trays, buckets and a pump which are used to separate the methamphetamine from the liquid."

Total haul: About 14 gallons of the stuff.

He also pleaded guilty to delivering four kilos of 82-percent pure meth to a DPS undercover agent in August.

He faces ten years to life, with sentencing set for August 30.
