UPPER DARBY, Pa. (CBS) – An Upper Darby homeowner was surprised to get a package from UPS — and even more surprised at what was inside.

The package was discovered last night at the house in the first block of Heather Road. Upper Darby Police Superintendant Michael Chitwood said it had come to the right place, but not the right person.

“It was not addressed to the homeowner, but he opened it up because it was addressed to his location,” Chitwood said. “When he opened it up, he saw a pound of marijuana, and called Upper Darby Police.”

They investigated, and found the return address  doesn’t exist. Chitwood said he’s seen it before — a package is sent to a legitimate address, then, “UPS will leave them on the porch, and then individuals will come and pick them up, unknown to the homeowner, and in some cases, known to the homeowner.”

Police are investigating. Meantime, the intended recipient’s half-baked scheme has gone up in smoke.
