Authorities confiscated a teddy bear at a Southern California toy store that was stuffed with marijuana.
The owner of Toy Town said Monday that he got the package last week, opened it up and found a 2-foot-tall blue teddy bear that felt "hard and crinkly." The bear turned out to be stuffed with three large, vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana.
Owner Joshua Vecchione says he called Orange County sheriff's officials.
The package was addressed to someone in Colorado and mailed from Thousand Oaks with the toy store, in Ladera Ranch, as the return address.
