Woman expecting yoga mat, gets $400000 in illegal drugs in mail instead

S. Carolina woman ordered a yoga mat; $400000 in illegal drugs unexpectedly arrived with it!

It's possible that only an unnamed SC woman who tried to order a yoga mat from Walmart is acquainted with this particular sensation. In all, there were more than 20,000 oxycodone pills, worth roughly $400,000.

After she opened the shipment, the woman alerted local police. She didn't want to go on camera, but told Channel 9 there were so many pills, they were spilling from the packaging.

Drug unit commander Marvin Brown said drugs are often shipped to empty homes where someone is sitting and waiting for the package to arrive.

The drugs were actually sent to the woman's old house, which is still vacant, but because the address was misspelled the package was re-routed using her name. According to Brown illegal drugs are shipped to vacant homes all the time. An incident report says she did not know who had used her name and address.

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

The woman's neighbor, Nicole Riddle, was reportedly stunned by the delivery.

"It's very scary. I'm shocked to hear it's happening in my neighborhood", neighbor Erika Priscero said.

The pills have been taken into evidence by authorities, who will try to trace the package to find out who sent it, who was meant to receive it, and where the drugs would have ended up.

The pills were seized by the Rock Hill Police Department.

They believe that they are probably counterfeit and could have come from Mexico.
