POLICE IN PENNSYLVANIA say an elderly couple was the unintended recipient of a very seedy delivery last week: a five-pound brick of marijuana worth thousands of dollars.
Police in Upper Darby, just outside Philadelphia, say the couple paid little attention to the package when it was delivered last week.
Not recognising the name that the package was addressed to, the couple simply left it on their porch, expecting it to be picked up by the correct addressee.
When nobody had claimed the package, the couple opened it to find what police say was $10,000 in high-grade marijuana.
Police superintendent Michael Chitwood told the Delaware County Daily Times that the couple gave the package to police, who determined the return address in Tollison, Arizona did not actually exist.
Chitwood says the department sees about a half-dozen similar deliveries a year and can sometimes track down the sender.
