ORLANDO, Fla. – Amazon customers in Florida got a surprise when they opened the package that arrived on their doorstep.
They ordered four plastic storage bins, but the containers came with 65 pounds of marijuana.
“We love Amazon and do a lot of shopping on Amazon,” the customer told WFTV, who asked not to be identified for safety reasons.
When she and her fiancé needed to put some things in storage, they placed an order for 27-gallon storage totes.
But when they arrived to their Orlando home, the couple knew something didn’t feel right.
“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” she said.
The marijuana was in boxes inside the totes and as soon as they opened the boxes, they were hit with a strong odor.
“When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief,” the customer said.
Police seized the drugs and launched an investigation.
