A Florida couple got a big surprise when they opened the package they ordered from Amazon.
WFTV reports that an Orlando couple, who asked not to be identified, ordered plastic bins to put some household items into storage.
The bins arrived with 65 pounds of marijuana.
“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” the customer said.
The marijuana was in boxes inside the bins and when they opened the boxes, they were hit with a powerful odor.
“When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief,” the woman said.
Orlando police seized the drugs and launched an investigation. There have been no arrests but the package appears to have been shipped by Amazon’s Warehouse Deals via UPS from a facility in Massachusetts.
Amazon says that it will work with law enforcement to investigate the case.
According to the WFTV report, the couple ordered the “Homz Durabilt Tough Storage Tote Box, 27 Gallon, Black with Yellow Lid, Stackable, 4-Pack” which retails for $40.17 plus $19.82 shipping.
