$24K Worth Of Marijuana Sent to Wrong House

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KXTV) -- Homeowner George Burton wasn't expecting any packages this week, but Thursday evening his dog sitter brought in a large FedEx Kinkos Box that was sitting on his front porch. "It was addressed to me or a return address to me: my name, my address were hand-written on this package," Burton said. The package had several different addresses on it, including one from Illinois. When no one claimed it at the Kinkos on J Street, the box was sent to the return address listed as Burton's home of eight years. "We start opening it up and it's filled with that packing Styrofoam, the spray-in stuff that's hard to get through," said Burton. "We break into it, I look, and say, 'This isn't what I think it is?'" The package contained 11 pounds of tightly packaged marijuana. Burton immediately called police, who were just as surprised.
