Melbourne, Jan 17 (ANI): An American woman has found more than a quarter-million dollars worth of drugs inside her new vacuum cleaner.
A Wisconsin woman helped police clean up 280,000 dollars worth of drugs inside her vacuum cleaner worth of drugs after she opened up a vacuum cleaner given to her for Christmas.
The woman found a secret stash of crystal meth and cocaine hidden inside the packaging, reports the Green Bay Press Gazette.
"This was an 'are you kidding me' incident," the Daily Telegraph quoted Lt. David Poteat, who heads the Brown County Drug Task Force, told the paper.
Police suspect a smuggler may have mistakenly stuffed the two pounds (0.9 kg) of crystal meth and the 2.2 pounds (nearly one kg) of cocaine inside the box before the unit was shipped from Juarez, the Mexican border city, where the vacuum cleaner had recently been sent for repair.
The woman called the police immediately after opening the package.
Authorities were convinced that she played no part in the drug shipment and were not planning to charge her. (ANI)
