We all curse the express companies for wrong deliveries, but this story near my home-town in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, sure had me in stitches. Happy new year!!!!!
UPS delivers, but not always to the right address, a Denton man discovered Monday when he found a lot of green inside a package dropped on his porch by the men in brown.
The man took the package to Denton police later that night, police spokesman Officer Ryan Grelle said. It contained a 30-pound brick of compressed marijuana with a street value of $10,500.
UPS mistakenly delivered it to the Denton house about 8 p.m., Grelle said. The resident was not at home at the time and opened it when he returned.
“He was expecting tools that he had ordered from Sears,” Grelle said. “He opened it up and thought, ‘Oh my.’ He loaded it up and brought it to the police department.”
Grelle said the package, which apparently came from Pharr, Texas and was handled by a UPS branch in McAllen on Jan. 6, wasn’t addressed to the Denton man whose porch it landed. It carried an address in Dallas. But there was no such address in Dallas, so someone at the package delivery service decided it must be meant for a similar address in Denton, the officer said.
The case is still under investigation.
