UPS delivers 5 pounds of marijuana

Atlanta-based UPS is known for its ability to get any package anywhere.

Once, they delivered giant whale sharks from Taiwan to Atlanta. And some pandas from China.

UPS delivered bamboo-smoking pandas from China to Atlanta in 2009.

Big Brown’s task was not so difficult recently in Upper Darby, Pa., which, as most cartography students know, is just above Lower Darby.

There, the UPS man delivered 5 pounds of marijuana to an “elderly couple,” according to the local CBS station.

The couple opened the package and found what police describe as “high quality” marijuana worth about $22,000.

They called the cops, which was wise. I surmise many recipients of such a package would be morally tested to do the same.

The return addresses on the package were fake, which indicates the person who shipped it is not a complete idiot.

Not a complete idiot? How about being on video camera when shipping the ganja? How about shipping it to the wrong address?

I bet the bamboo smoking pandas were complicit in this caper.That explains the fake address. they were avoiding those cracker jack customs officers.$4400 a pound? Upper Darby must be way up in price.

“They called the cops,…”

…who will probably secure the stash in the evidence locker until the next police dept. Christmas party.

People this is nothing news worthy or anything new. The shippers pick a house near the correct location usually an empty house (obviously not this time). They know about what time UPS drops the packages in that area and watch the house. UPS doesnt require a siqnature at a residential house, so they are usually just dropped at the front door and can be quickly grabbed. This way if the packages gets discovered during shipping its untraceable. For all the weed that gets shipped losing 5lbs is nothing. And also there is no camera in most local UPS locations, and definitly none at the ups drop boxes.
