Kicker – USPS drug bust

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Chances are you’ve received a package or two at your home that was intended for another address. 

Well, a Houston, Texas, area resident recently received a package that was clearly meant for someone else. 

But this wasn’t the kind of misdelivered package you simply drop off at the post office.

And when the unidentified recipient opened it, he or she immediately called 911.

The package contained 32 large bags of marijuana—all of which are now in police custody. 

But the Harris County Sheriff’s Department posted a friendly message on its Instagram account to the intended recipient. 

Next to a smiley face emoji, the post said “If it is yours please contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office to claim it.” 

We should note that Texas is not among the states that have legalized pot.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
