Driver delivers 300 lbs of pot in safe to wrong address

Driver delivers 300 lbs of pot in safe to wrong address.  At this point the delivery driver probably realizes now that the good guys and bad guys are both looking for him. He is not safe!

In June, an Ohio man ordered a 6 foot tall safe safe weighing about 1,000 pounds from an online store for about $1,700. His plan was to store 24 long rifles and a dozen shotguns. When the safe was delivered, it was opened and the customer found the 10 tightly wrapped bales of marijuana. It is thought the packaging was designed to withstand high temperatures and drug sniffing dogs. The street value of the pot is estimated at just under a half million dollars.

The unidentified man who took in  the surprise shipment had ordered the from the manufacturer, Champion Safe Co., which is based in Nogales, Mexico,

ABC New quoted the Shelby County Sheriff, John Lenhart as saying, “I’ve been in law enforcement for 47 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

The stash of pot found in a gun safe delivered to an Ohio man’s home was worth about $425,000, cop said.

The stash of pot found in a gun safe delivered to an Ohio man’s home was worth about $425,000, cop said.

“Someplace between Mexico and the warehouse in northern Ohio, the drugs got mixed up and put in the wrong safe and got delivered to the wrong person,” Lenhart said.

Cops said they are searching for a driver at Conway Inc., the truck company hired by Champion to ship more than two dozen safes to the Ohio warehouse for local distribution.

The safe full of pot has sparked interest with investigators with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, who suspect this method may be used more often to smuggle drugs into the country.

“You spent $1,700 to get marijuana delivered wherever you want,” said Jim Frye, chief deputy with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. “That’s pretty cheap.”

The safe company did not respond to a request for comment, the news source said.
