What jokingly may be called “pot luck” could have, under the right circumstances, sent a North Carolina couple to prison for a very, very long time. It wasn’t the lastest scam junk mail promising a world cruise or anything of that nature, either. Instead, what was found was, “nearly $ 30,000 in marijuana inside a package that was delivered at their doorstep,” Fox News reports.
The weighty box that was delivered had “15 1-pound bricks of marijuana” within, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Luckily, as WSOC 9 observed, authorities were understanding because this is the second time that drugs have arrived at unsuspecting recipients in the area in just the last week.
York County investigators said that a woman in Rock Hill was expecting a yoga mat and instead she wound up with “a box overfilling with oxycodone pills” last Saturday. There were over 20,000 pills inside and the value of them rang in at $ 400,000!
There is nothing like mailing a felony to someone.
Both of the cases are still open as police try and find the source and attempt to discover if they are linked.
Marvin Brown, commander of the York County Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit informed WSCO 9 that drug dealers are taking the risk and using the postal service to deliver more contraband now more than in other times.
Fox News writes that “Traffickers are using fake or wrong addresses and names and then waiting for the packages to be delivered there.” While that may be the case, unless these two houses were recently vacant, that does not explain how these drugs arrived where people were living.
The other ominous question is who was watching these people’s homes if it were to be the case that the drugs went to the correct property? For that matter, what could happen to those who turned the drugs in if certain elements of the underground get angry about it?
All of these dangers could be averted if the U.S. moved in a direction of HEAVILY policing and monitoring drug use, but not arresting people for it since that only fuels the underground which is often dangerous and violent.
Hopefully, neither is the case for these two homes.
