    An Ohio man expected the gun safe he ordered online to be empty, police said.
    But instead, he found $425,000-worth of tightly wrapped marijuana bricks inside.


    "I've been in law enforcement for 47 years and I've never seen anything like this," Shelby County, Ohio, Sheriff John L. Lenhart said. "It's quite effective if you think about it: wrapped airtight to withstand high temperatures. Drug-sniffing dogs probably couldn't smell it."
    It turned out the gun safes were manufactured by Champion Safe Co. in Nogales, Mexico, packaged by local inmates and shipped north, police said.


    "Someplace between Mexico and the warehouse in Northern Ohio, the drugs got mixed up and put in the wrong safe and got delivered to the wrong person," Lenhart said.
    Police hope to question a driver for Conway Inc., the truck company they said Champion hired to move the 25 to 30 gun safes to a warehouse in Ohio for local distribution. But they have not been able to find the driver, officials said.
    "Not only are we looking for him," Lenhart said, "but the bad guys are, too."

    If I'm ordering a gun safe they might be kind of paranoid about confronting me :dontknow:

    They're making multi millions weekly. Probably just write that shipment off.

    Thats what I was thinking too. When it said tightly wrapped packages. No way it was high grade stuff.

    Yeah it was most likely shit weed, but I'd still only be reporting that I found "290" pounds in the safe.

    Or they are reasonable men. Might even give you a little cash bonus for not alerting the authorities and they would probably be more than happy to give you 5 pounds as an extra good will bonus.

    The end of the day its a business. That scenario would probably be cheaper and not alert the cops to that method of smuggling. :dontknow:

    At least not until the owners of the drugs figure out where it actually got shipped to. Then it's blowtorch time.
