Carolina woman receives huge drug shipment by mail

The woman called police Saturday afternoon, September 30 from her Rock Hill home after opening the box.

Choosing to stay anonymous, the woman - from Rock Hill, South Carolina - was expecting her package on Sunday but was given a box stuffed with oxycodone pills.

- A woman in SC called police Saturday afternoon after she reportedly received a large package of illegal drugs in the mail, worth around $400,000, instead of the yoga mat she ordered.

"Most of this is counterfeit", said Marvin Brown with the York County drug unit.

Inside the package, the two bags contained approximately 10,000 pills each at a price of $20 a pill.

Diwali gift for Rahul Gandhi, may replace Sonia Gandhi as Congress chief
This is the first visit to Amethi by Rahul Gandhi since February 19 when he had addressed an election rally in his constituency. The district administration had written a letter to the Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi, seeking a postpone in Rahul's visit.

However, the street was misspelled on the package, the post office caught the mistake, and forwarded the package to the woman's current address. In fact, more than 20,000 oxycodone pills were handed to her, worth about $400,000.

Brown said it is likely the package was supposed to be sent to the woman's former address at a condo near Dave Lyle Boulevard.

Brown added: 'The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were'. According to Brown illegal drugs are shipped to vacant homes all the time. She immediately called police after opening the box.

The pills have been taken into evidence by authorities, who will try to trace the package to find out who sent it, who was meant to receive it, and where the drugs would have ended up.

The woman's neighbor, Nicole Riddle, was reportedly stunned by the delivery.
