Elderly Couple Accidentally Receives 5-Pound Marijuana Brick

Police in Delaware County are investigating a case where an elderly couple became the accidental recipients of a five-pound brick of marijuana, mistakenly delivered to the couple’s home last week.

Police are attempting to track down the origin of the illegal substance, which they say UPS delivered.

The package had been addressed to someone whose name they did not recognize, but the old couple decided to open the package anyway. That’s when they found pot inside and called the police.

Police superintendent Michael Chitwood described the marijuana as “high quality,” worth about $22,000 on the street. He says that these deliveries were more common than most people think.

“During the course of a year, we’ll probably get anywhere from six to ten of these types of things,” he said.
