DENTON, Texas (AP) - A man in Denton, Texas who was expecting a
shipment of tools instead received a 30-pound brick of marijuana
that police say is worth more than $10,000.
Officer Ryan Grelle says the man opened the box Monday night,
realized it contained drugs and contacted police.
The package from the Pharr area was handled by UPS in McAllen on
Jan. 6. and apparently was intended for a Dallas address.
The Denton Record-Chronicle reports no such address exists in
Dallas, so the package wound up 40 miles to the northwest at the
similar address in Denton.
