Woman Expecting Yoga Mat Finds Package With Drugs

According to local police, the Rock Hill resident was waiting for her package on September 30 when her mailman handed her a box around 2 p.m. local time.

The priority mail package that was shipped from Newport Beach, California not only excluded her yoga mat but the box was filled with illegal Oxycodone with a street value of $400,000.00.

A SC woman who thought she was unboxing the yoga mat she had ordered from Walmart found something much more nefarious - $400,000 in oxycodone pills, according to WSOC.

The woman, who was not named, said that there were so many pills they were spilling out of the box.

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


The police reportedly seized the drugs and notified the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, who have opened an investigation.

Apparently, the box was supposed to be sent to the woman's old apartment, which is now vacant.

Agents said suspects also target homes that are usually empty during the day, so they can swipe the packages without the resident ever knowing.

Drug unit Commander Marvin Brown said the package was likely meant to be delivered to the woman's previous address, which she recently moved from and is now vacant, WSOC reported.

"The suspects go around looking for vacant houses and have stuff mailed to the addresses", Rock Hill Police spokesperson Mark Bollinger said.
