Family Receives Marijuana in the Mail
A Wichita family gets a big surprise in the mail, but not anything they'd want to put under the tree. It was a package filled with 30 pounds of marijuana.
The two bricks of marijuana were delivered by Federal Express on Thursday. The pot has a street value of about $12,000. The package had a return address from California.
Fed Ex officials say they're shocked and are trying to get to the bottom of it. Spokesman Jim McCluskey says the company has one of the most secure networks in shipping and is often cited for awards from local and federal law enforcement agencies.
McCluskey says the company doesn't know how this package made it through. They're taking steps to prevent it from happening again. The Wichita Police did not have a comment on the case.
