A Massachusetts woman is suing FedEx after they delivered the wrong package to her house, which contained seven pounds of marijuana. If that wasn’t bad enough, she claims FedEx provided the pot dealers, who were looking for the package, her home address to retrieve their package. According to “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday, March 2, 2013, the drug dealers showed up at her front door.
By the time the drug dealers got to her house, the pot was gone. Maryangela Tobin of Plymouth said she opened the package thinking it was a birthday present from her daughter and discovered the pot, according to KZTV10.com on Friday. She did what most any good citizen would do and that was to call the police.
Police arrested the people who came knocking at her door to retrieve the package, but Tobin is fearful of retribution from these drug dealers. Her lawsuit claims that FedEx put her and her children in danger by violating the privacy laws and giving out her address. FedEx did not know what was in the package that was delivered to the wrong address at the time.
When FedEx was contacted for a comment, The Memphis, Tenn. based company stated that it doesn’t comment on pending lawsuits.
According to the website The Price of Weed, in Massachusetts, where this incident occurred, the street value of pot per ounce is about $300 to $400, depending on the type and quality of marijuana. With 16 ounces in a pound, that means the pot could have a street value of about $6,000 per pound. The package this woman was delivered contained seven pounds, putting the value of the entire package at somewhere around $42,000.
It sounds like that’s enough money for criminals to want retribution for sure! It also sounds like Tobin has a reason to be frightened of this criminal element coming back to her home now that they know where she lives.
