Upper Darby Resident Finds Marijuana In The Mail

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.

    Bams < one intelligent person, huh? Possibly because the article is about marijuanna in the mail. Get it, mail and mailboxes, LOL. UPS or usps, all mail sources. I have recieved many ups packages in my mail box.

    probably because they legally couldn’t show you a ups truck or guy……

    Why are they showing mailboxes if it was delivered by UPS? The title of the article and the photo makes it sound like the postal service was involved when it was actually UPS.
