Woman orders yoga mat, gets oxycodone instead

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

The Rock Hill Herald reports the woman told Rock Hill police she was handed a package by the mailman Saturday and found the pills.

Due to a misspelled address, the package was then in all likelihood forwarded to the woman's current address, hence she did not receive the anticipated yoga mat.

A stunned woman who ordered a yoga mat through the mail was shocked to find that nearly 20,000 illegal narcotic pills were delivered to her, police said.

Officers with the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit took possession of the drugs and have launched an investigation, said Marvin Brown, commander of the unit.

Inside the package, the two bags contained approximately 10,000 pills each at a price of $20 a pill.

Brown speculated that the package may have been meant for delivery to the woman's former address at a condo which is now vacant.

According to the shipping label, the package was sent from Newport Beach, California. The post office knew she had moved and thought they would do her a favor by delivering it to her new address.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, quickly called police and reported the illegal shipment.

Neighbor Nicole Riddle was stunned to hear that more than 20,000 oxycodone pills were delivered just doors away from her by mistake.

Police say the pills are likely to be counterfeit oxycodone from Mexico that were pressed from powder. Investigators are now working to figure out who sent them and who was supposed to pick them up.
