Did you order seven pounds of weed? If so, we may know where your package is – although good luck retrieving it.
When a parcel landed on a family’s doorstep in Arlington, Texas – with the correct address and wrong name – they examined it for a return contact. Not finding one, they decided to look inside to see if there were any clues. Instead they found a huge amount of marijuana.
Panicked, they immediately contacted to the police.
“The family was a little shook up and surprised,” Arlington Police Department spokesman Christopher Cook told the Fort Worth Star Telegram. “They don’t want anybody obviously coming looking for a package now,” he said.
Officers took possession of the drugs and notified US Postal Inspectors, who will continue the investigation, according to a Facebook post by the force.
The family had only recently moved into the house – and police have speculated that the house, when vacant, may have been used a delivery point. The post said: “Package being delivered to wrong person nets lots of drugs.
“Officers were notified by a resident that a package had been left at their front door. The name on the package didn’t match the homeowner even though the address did. To their dismay when they opened the box, there was approximately 7 pounds of marijuana inside. Not exactly the type of holiday gift they were expecting. They had just recently purchased the house and so they immediately notified police.”
