A South Carolina woman received much more than she bargained for when she opened up a package and found it contained a bag of drugs. Instead of receiving a yoga mat, the Rock Hill woman got the drugs in place. She was perplexed and immediately called the police to report the incident.
According to WSOCTV, the box contained roughly 20,000 oxycodone pills worth an estimated $400,000.
The woman said she immediately called the police.
York County drug agents told the outlet that the box was shipped from Newport Beach, California.
Drug unit commander Marvin Brown said that the drugs are usually shipped to “vacant apartments [and] homes where people have gone to work for the day.”
He said the pickup person waits outside the home to accept the package.
Brown said he thinks whoever mailed the box most likely meant to send it to the woman’s old address because no one is living there.
However, the street was misspelled on the package so the post office found the woman’s current address and forwarded it to her.
“The dealers weren’t as intelligent as they thought they were,” he said.
The pills have all been taken into evidence by the Rock Hill Police Department. The narcotics team said it will try and trace the package to find out who sent it and who was supposed to receive it.
