Bills, catalogs, junk mail - marijuana?
Indeed, police say a surprise 2-pound package of marijuana arrived in the mail last week at one elderly woman's home in southern Michigan's Blackman Township, which is about 75 miles west of Detroit.
The woman called police. Detectives don't know who sent the weed. They learned that the Arizona return address on the package was bogus.
Police say the pot is worth about $2,400. Deputy Director Jon Johnston told The Jackson Citizen Patriot that the marijuana either was sent to the woman's home by mistake or someone planned to snatch it from the mailbox before she checked.
The pot will be destroyed.
