Fla. Couple Orders Containers From Amazon, Gets 65 Pounds of Weed, Too

They say don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, but one Florida couple may be forgiven for doing so because this pungent present wasn’t really for them anyway.

Last month, an unidentified Amazon.com customer and her fiance ordered four plastic storage bins but were shocked to find 65 pounds of Mary Jane inside the containers (marijuana, that is).

The Orlando, Fla., pair said that they immediately smelled something amiss—you know that package had to be loud.

“[The bins] were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins. … When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief,” the customer said.

She also said that they were so afraid that someone would come and retrieve the weed, they didn’t sleep at their home for a few days.

Orlando police seized the drugs, but Amazon had nothing for the customer and her fiance.

After reportedly going back and forth with the company for a month (the couple say they just wanted an apology), the pair eventually received a $150 gift card with a message saying, “I am unable to do anything else at this time,” the International Business Times reports .

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

Florida Couple’s Amazon Order Includes 65 Pounds of Marijuana

A Florida couple that ordered storage totes from Amazon was surprised when the plastic bins arrived filled with marijuana.

The Amazon customers, who asked to remain anonymous for safety reasons, had ordered 27-gallon storage totes in order to store some of their belongings. But when the order arrived, the package was not as light as the couple expected — the total order weighed 93.5 pounds.

“They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins,” the customer told WFTV.

Upon opening the package, the couple discovered that boxed marijuana was packed inside the totes. The couple immediately alerted authorities, who have launched an investigation.

“When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief,” the customer said.

WFTV reports the package was shipped via UPS by Amazon’s Warehouse Deals from a Massachusetts facility. The couple said Amazon sent them a $150 gift card for the inconvenience. Amazon said in a statement that its customer service dealt with the matter.

“Our customer service team worked directly with the customer to address concerns and will work with law enforcement to investigate the case, as needed,” a spokesperson said.
