South Carolina woman orders yoga mat, gets drugs instead

posted by Dave DeVille - 

According to WSOC, a Rock Hill, South Carolina woman who did not want to be identified called police when she received a package she thought was the yoga mat she ordered, but turned out to be more than 20,000 oxycodone pills, worth roughly $400,000.

York County drug agents said the drugs were shipped from Newport Beach, California.

Marvin Brown, the drug unit commander of York County, said drugs are often shipped to empty homes and someone sits and waits for the package to arrive.

"Vacant apartments, homes where people have gone to work for the day," he said.

Brown said it is likely the package was supposed to be sent to the woman's former address which is now vacant, and that someone was likely using her old address as a drop point.

But it seems the drug dealers screwed up and misspelled the street address on the package. The Post Office caught the mistake and forwarded the package to the woman's new address.

Brown said, "The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were.”

The pills have been taken into evidence by Rock Hill police.

It is unclear if the woman has received her yoga mat yet.
