Pot was found in a Kmart store in Seattle. Employees got quite the surprise when they found the pot in garbage bags that had been delivered to the store. Police were promptly notified. On Feb. 1, LA Times reported that the marijuana was actually meant to be delivered to a different address but for some reason UPS delivered it to the return address -- which was the Kmart store.
"On Monday, Kmart workers informed police that the pot was wrapped in garbage bags, packing peanuts and 'cleaning-fluid-soaked pages from a Korean newspaper,'" the LA Times reported. Police are currently investigating the case, trying to figure out where the pot came from -- and who shipped it.T
The pot found in the Kmart store was likely meant for someone else but police did not disclose where the package was supposed to go. It sounds like the Kmart store was just a "clever" way to disguise the sender, who could not use his or her own address for obvious reasons.
"Delivery information on the package indicates it was originally shipped from Los Angeles to a Philadelphia address, but never made it to its intended destination in Philly. Whoever sent the package listed the address of the Seattle Kmart on the return label, for some reason," said department spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee (via Seattle PI).
The pot found in the Kmart store obviously won't be making it to its intended location.
