Couple Receives 11 Pounds of Marijuana Delivered to Rental Property, Handed It Over to Cops

Police say they could've been arrested if they had been stopped on their way home with the suitcases


A Key Largo couple was mistakenly shipped 11 pounds of marijuana at a rental home in Louisiana, but the two didn't realize what was in the package until they arrived back home in the Florida Keys, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said.

The husband told Monroe deputies the box was first shipped to their home in Louisiana back in July, but he instructed his cleaning lady to return it to UPS, authorities said. The package was sent back to the rental home once more, and this time the cleaning lady put it inside while the couple was away.
