A Florida couple was shocked when they received their four ordered 27-gallon storage bins from Amazon and discovered that they were filled with 65 pounds of marijuana inside.
The couple said they knew something was off when their UPS driver said the weight was 93.5 pounds, almost 30 pounds heavier then expected.
“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from order four empty bins,” the woman said.
The woman was curious so she opened the bins and she immediately had a pungent odor of marijuana and that lead the couple to look through the bins where they noticed layers and sealed packaged marijuana.
The woman said that she immediately contacted the Orlando police. “When the first officer got there she was in disbelief,” the woman told WFLA. and the officers took the marijuana to investigate where it came from.
The woman told the news station that the bins were shipped by Amazon “Warehouse Deals” and that she contacted Amazon and they had a back and forth with them about it.
The operator apparently offered the couple a $150 gift card and that was it because they were “unable to do anything else at this time.”
