Imagine a woman’s surprise when she opened her much-anticipated package from Amazon. It arrived on her doorstep like every other, but contained 65 pounds of marijuana in the box.
A customer in Florida ordered four plastic storage bins to use as storage, so they placed an Amazon order for 27-gallon storage totes. But when the shipment arrived, the couple knew that something wasn’t right.
“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” she said.
As soon as the couple opened the boxes, the strong odor hit them and they knew exactly what was wrong. They quickly called the police to report the drugs.
The cops seized the marijuana and launched an investigation. It was determined that the shipment came from Amazon’s Warehouse Deals from a UPS facility in Massachusetts.
“We were pretty fearful our home would be broken into, so we didn’t sleep there for a few days,” the customer said, who chose to remain anonymous for safety reasons.
The couple has now been going back and forth with Amazon over email for more than a month and has yet to speak to a supervisor.
Eventually, they received a $150 gift card with the message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time.” But the customers still don’t have an explanation into what happened.
“There was no concern for a customer’s safety. I mean, this could have turned into a worst-case scenario,” the couple said.
The police still have made no arrests, but are continuing to investigate the case.
