Marijuana Mistakenly Sent To Couple’s Home

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — Deputies in the Florida Keys will destroy eleven pounds of marijuana mistakenly shipped to a rental home owned by a Key Largo couple.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office did not identify the couple who called them on Wednesday after finding the drugs inside two locked suitcases.

The couple told authorities a box was shipped to a vacation rental home they own in Louisiana in July, so they told their housekeeper to return it. But the package wound up again at the home.

When the couple visited the rental home, they opened the box and found two locked blue suitcases inside. Thinking they were someone’s lost luggage, the couple put the suitcases in their truck and didn’t open them until they got home to Key Largo. Inside were two sealed bags full of marijuana.
