An Orlando couple looking for a deal on storage bins got an unexpected bonus – or a disturbing intrusion by drug traffickers, depending on your perspective – when they found 65 lbs. of marijuana packed in the bins.

The couple, who prefer to remain unidentified, notified the police, so it's probably no one you know. Orlando police haven't made any arrests, but are still investigating the case.

The couple was dissatisfied with Amazon's customer service in handling the case, saying that they were never able to speak to a supervisor to find out how the devil's lettuce could have gotten packed in with their order. They did get a $150 Amazon giftcard, though, which could have purchased them this Magical Butter 2 Butter Making Machine – you know, for making "herbal butter" – but it doesn't seem like they'd be interested.

Plus, the cops took the weed.

Before you start ordering all of the 27-gallon storage bins you can find on Amazon, though, you should be aware that the order was fulfilled through an Amazon Warehouse Deals third party rather than from one of their own fulfillment centers.
