Everyone likes a nice surprise, unless it’s several pounds of illegal drugs hidden inside your order of plastic bins.
That was the case for one Florida couple who ordered plastic storage bins from Amazon and found 65 pounds of marijuana mysteriously stashed inside.
WFTV9 reports: When [the customer] and her fiancé needed to put some things in storage, they placed an order for 27 gallon storage totes. But when the packages arrived, they knew something didn’t feel right. The marijuana was in boxes inside the totes and as soon as they opened the boxes, they were hit with a strong odor. It had been shipped by Amazon’s Warehouse Deals via UPS from a facility in Massachusetts. It weighed 93.5 pounds.
The customer told reporters, “They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins. When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief. We were still pretty fearful our home would be broken into, and we didn’t sleep there for a few days.”
The couple says they’ve been going back and forth with the company via email for months and never spoke to a supervisor. One day they received an email giving them a $150 gift card with the message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time.”
Twitter found the whole thing to be pretty funny:
No arrests have been made but police are still investigating the bizarre incident.
