FedEx delivers package with cocaine, heroin, meth to the wrong address

FedEx delivers package with cocaine, heroin, meth to the wrong address

On October 15, 2014, Harris County sheriff's officials in Texas reported that three people have been arrested, after a FedEx package containing illicit drugs was delivered to the wrong address. The unintended recipient opened the box and found cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. The resident notified authorities.

Instead of the FedEx package full of drugs they were expecting, a Texas trio received an unwelcome visit from the police. Search of the premises unearthed approximately $100,000 worth of drugs, described as “a hodgepodge of cocaine, heroin, LSD, steroids, assorted prescription drugs and a whole bunch of guns," including an AR-15 rifle with a full 30-round clip and a military-grade night scope. Scales, baggies and other drug paraphernalia were also found at the scene.
