A SC woman received the surprise of her life after placing an online order for a yoga mat. In all, there were more than 20,000 oxycodone pills, worth roughly $400,000.
Officers with the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit took possession of the drugs and have launched an investigation, said Marvin Brown, commander of the unit.
He continued by saying the sender may have meant to send the package to the woman's former address at a empty condo in the area. She didn't want to go on camera, but told Channel 9 there were so many pills, they were spilling from the packaging. Brown said that the ideal place for drug pickups are, "vacant apartments [and] homes where people have gone to work for the day". The dealers then track the package and wait in front of the house for the delivery truck to arrive.
After she opened the shipment, the woman alerted local police. It's now vacant and someone was probably using that address as a drop point. An incident report says she did not know who had used her name and address. Police are reportedly working to trace the botched delivery back to the person in California who sent it.
