Woman reportedly received 20000 oxycodone pills in mail instead of yoga mat

Woman expecting yoga mat, gets $400000 in illegal drugs in mail instead

According to local police, the Rock Hill resident was waiting for her package on September 30 when her mailman handed her a box around 2 p.m. local time.

In the incident around 2 p.m. Saturday, in the northwest part of Rock Hill, the woman told police she was waiting for the yoga mat to be delivered, and was handed a package by the mailman, according to an incident report from the Rock Hill Police Department.

A SC woman who ordered a yoga mat online instead received around $400,000 worth of illegal drugs. She immediately called the police about the box which was shipped from Newport Beach, California.

York County drug agent Marvin Brown said the unexpected delivery is not that uncommon, and it was likely meant to be sent to her old apartment, which is now vacant, where someone would watch for the delivery and pick it up before anyone noticed.

"The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were", Commander Brown added.




But the address was misspelled on the package and the post office sent the it to the woman's current address.

Authorities say each oxycodone-type pill had a street value of about $20, making the total drug bust worth as much as $400,000.

Brown said it's common for drugs to be shipped to vacant homes, where someone will wait for the mail carrier and then take the package.

After she opened the shipment, the woman alerted local police.

Police seized the pills, which they believe are counterfeit oxycodone from Mexico.
