A Florida couple accidentally hauled an 11-pound stash of marijuana home from Louisiana, authorities said.
The Key Largo husband and wife carried the leafy contraband throughout a 900-mile journey before they got back to Florida, popped open a pair of mysterious suitcases and discovered bags of weed inside. The alarmed couple quickly called the local sheriff’s office, authorities said.
“This could have been really bad,” Monroe County Sheriff Sgt. Al Ramirez said in a statement. “These people were traveling all over with this stuff in their truck. If they had been pulled over with it, they could have wound up in jail and their truck may have been seized.”
The strange case of the accidental smugglers began in July when a puzzling package arrived at one of the couple’s rental properties in Louisiana. A housekeeper informed the husband, who told her to ship it back to UPS. The man told a deputy the cleaning lady returned the box, but it was later shipped back to the rental and she put it inside.
The box was still there when the husband and wife recently took a trip to check on several of their vacation properties. They opened the box and found two locked blue suitcases inside. Thinking the bags were lost luggage being returned to someone, they tossed them in their truck and planned to deal with them later, authorities said.
They finally decided to cut off the locks when they got home and discovered two sealed bags stuff with marijuana.
They called the sheriff’s office on Wednesday.
Ramirez said the marijuana was confiscated and would be destroyed.
