SEATTLE - A shipment of marijuana on its way from Los Angeles to Philadelphia somehow ended up delivered to a Seattle Kmart instead.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer said a worker called police on Monday saying they’d received the 10-pound shipment packed in garbage bags with foam peanuts and cleaning-fluid-soaked pages from a Korean newspaper.
Police said for some reason the return label on the package was listed as the Seattle Kmart address.
The marijuana, said to have been shipped by UPS, has been taken into evidence.
Ironically, if the shippers had waited a few weeks, the delivery may have been returned to the sender because the Kmart in North Seattle where it was delivered is scheduled to permanently close Sunday.
