To the surprise of a couple living in Florida, they received 65 pounds of marijuana in their UPS delivery through Amazon. The couple who had ordered 27 gallon plastic storage bins, were surprised to find marijuana instead.

After receiving the shipment, the couple immediately contacted the Orlando police who seized the delivery and have begun investigation into the incident. As per reports, the shipment was originated at Amazon’s warehouse Deals facility in Massachusetts and was delivered through UPS.

The shipment which was wrapped in boxes and in totes gave a wrong impression to the customers the moment they picked it up. It emitted a strong odor and after uncovering several layers of packing, the woman discovered marijuana from the shipment.

“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” the anonymous woman reportedly said in an interview.

Even though after repeated complaints and demanding explanations from Amazon, the woman said she had got no response.

“Unable to do anything at this time,” was the reply of the sender via email. The couple also received a $150 gift card certificate from the company.

However, the couple feel the move is not enough and want an apology and an explanation as to how the marijuana shipment was delivered to them.

“There was no concern for a customer's safety. I mean this could have turned into a worst-case scenario,” she said.

As per reports, the couple stayed away from home for several days after receiving the shipment as they feared someone might try to break into their house.
