The unsuspecting customers were expecting empty storage bins.

Published October 25, 2017

A shocked Florida couple who expected an order of four empty Amazon bins received 65 pounds of marijuana instead.

The couple was alarmed by the package because, “they were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” the woman told the ABC affiliate.

The package, shipped via UPS from Massachusetts by Amazon’s Warehouse Deals according to the New York Post

Police are currently investigating the source of the package and how the mix-up occurred. The couple wanted to remain anonymous due to fear of their home being broken into after the package arrived especially with the amount of marijuana in their possession.

According to Newsweek, if prices on websites like Honest Marijuana are anything to go by, an ounce of weed in Florida can cost around $200, giving the 65 pounds of weed a street value of around $200,000.
