Woopsie, who could have sent this.

www.miamiherald.com...



The first tip off was the weight. Four empty plastic storage bins should not weight more than 93 pounds.

Then the smell —an overpowering odor akin to the old Hollywood Sportatorium rock concert hall in the 1970s.

But that is what has an Orlando couple feeling dazed and confused. When the pair opened their order from Amazon that arrived at their doorstep they found the storage bins loaded with 65 pounds of wrapped marijuana.





The marijuana sat inside boxes wrapped in green plastic inside the black bins. Police seized the drugs and are investigating, WFTV reports, adding that the customers reported the incident to Amazon immediately and were never able to speak to a supervisor. They went back and forth mostly via emails for about a month, the TV station reported.

Eventually, the couple received an email and a $150 gift card with the message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time.”

Amazon didn’t respond to an email inquiry from the Miami Herald on Saturday about the mix up. The company told the ABC affiliate that its customer service team had worked directly with the customers to address concerns and would work with law enforcement officials to investigate the case.


Just wow Amazon. Not sure I would have been so proactive in contacting Amazon, but I guess paranoia may have run amok.

How much did they pay for the bins, and does anyone have a link to the product page?

I am asking for a friend

Probably someone that didn't want the sender to track the package to them.

That must be one of the side-effects of marijuana- administrative capability begins to break down.

Lesson learned. It's amazing next time I need a storage bin.

Hmmm...93lb shipping on plastic totes? Only 65lbs of marijuana? Seems like they may have removed 10-20lbs before reporting!

Denial. If it came USPS which is what amazon uses for the most part you just say you never got it.
I got breaks , a full set of discs pads the works delivered to my door. I called FedEx but they never came to get them. A month later I finally opened the box to see what was inside. They're still here...any interested parties?

I tried to return them. I'm guessing the consignee just reordered them. I got an order of custom Christmas cards delivered to my home last year. I called USPS for that one. Again, they never came. The cards were for a family not far away with the same house number as mine. Finally I just drove them over to the right people so they could get them mailed in time. The company just happened to be the same one I order mine from so I knew what was in the box. It came right after thanksgiving. A week after they arrived here I delivered them to the correct party. The post office kept leaving them on my porch even though I had a note on the mailbox to take them to the right house. Eventually I figured the post office would probably send them back to the printers so I decided to do the job myself.
The breaks had my address and a name not listed in the phone book so I couldn't deliver them. Besides the package was heavy.

On the low end assuming it is mid grade that’s roughly about $1000 per Lb and if it were loud then your looking at about $3000 per Lb so they just “did the right thing” and threw away $65,000 - $195,000. Numbers like that would make for a tough decision.

It's not so simple. Haven't you ever seen the first season of Breaking Bad? It's not so easy to break into the world of drug sales when you've never done it before. Especially with bulk like that. Any streetwise drug seller would be immediately suspicious of these white bred people trying to unload that much weight.

Believe me I understand, maybe because I have so many friends in low places I don’t see the logistics being a problem but that’s just me.

Most normal people would have absolutely no idea what to do with 65 lbs of green. You think Mom and Pop Smith down the street know what to do with 30 kilos of pot? I imagine they were pretty shocked and worried.

This opens up a deeper question...are there listings on Amazon that actually correspond to illicit substances? Like, if I know the correct Amazon account to order from, and I purchase 3 empty totes, is that code to ship me a bunch of dope? That would be pretty smart... otherwise, how did someone happen to stuff all that pot in those totes on accident?

Yeah. I have more than a few friends in the game as well. I wouldn't have an issue unloading it either if the events in the OP happened to me too. I'm just spittballing here, but if this couple were the types to call the cops over the pot then they likely didn't know the right people to unload it easily.

ETA: Also 65 lbs of green is a lot of weight to unload even for someone who is in the game. I'm not sure it would be easy to unload unless you knew a major distributor in your area.

So were suppose to believe these suspiciously "heavy and stinky" bins of weed traveled throughout the mail delivery system w/o arrousing suspicion, even being delivered to a destination and nobody noticed except the pople at the end?

I mean, I get the whole somebody had it delivered to the wrong address to avoid arrest and fell asleep at the switch when the shipment arrived (look across the street) and all....

In the financial situation I’m in now, it would be real temping to make money. But I also think it’s no accident, you don’t misplace that kind of money worth of stuff. I believe it could of been a neighbor or someone down the street using a elderly couples house as a decoy, Incase they got busted.

I think they never got the package in time. Maybe they where planning on robbing them getting their weed back. Who knows but one way or another they where planning on getting it back till the cops found out.
