Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Can you imagine moving into a new house and then receiving a package that wasn't addressed to anyone in the house, but when you opened the package, there was 7 pounds of marijuana in it? First of all, why would you open a package that wasn't addressed to you? Secondly, would you call the police if you found 7 pounds of marijuana? Hell no! It's party time! I'm only kidding! But this is what happened to a family in Arlington, Texas, just in case any of you recently moved from there and were waiting for a package in the mail.
The package, which is now in the hands of U.S. Postal Service inspectors, was dropped off to the wrong person. So, if you want it back, there might be a small problem. The box containing 7 pounds of marijuana, was left on the doorstep of an Arlington home. The address on the label was correct, but the recipient's name didn't match the homeowners, who'd only recently moved in to the previously vacant property. There was no return address. Pretty fishy, huh?
The new homeowners opened up the package and immediately called the police after seeing what they described as "a green leafy substance." I still don't understand how this family is not in trouble for tampering with mail? If it's not addressed to you, you're not allowed to open it. Tampering with mail is a federal offense. If I received a package that came to me with the wrong name, but the right address, I would have given it back to the post office to forward it. Opening up mail that isn't addressed to you is a crime. Why isn't anyone calling attention to that? Besides, that "green leafy substance" is legal in many states now. Maybe it was someone's medicine? I think the problem here is really mail tampering and those goody two-shoes should be the one's in trouble.
According to Arlington Police, "The family was a little shook up and surprised.They don't want anybody obviously coming looking for a package now." Who the hell moved into this house? The Brady Bunch? Police seized the weed and it's now in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service inspectors, who are investigating the incident. Police are speculating that someone may have been shipping packages to the house, which had been vacant for some time before the new family moved in. Doh! Oops!
