Another Brick of Weed with Arizona Address Sent to Unsuspecting People in Philly Suburb

​For the second time this month, a random person in a Philadelphia suburb received an unanticipated brick of weed in the mail from an Arizona address.

Just two weeks ago an elderly couple in the town of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, opened a package with an Arizona return address with five pounds of marijuana.

Police in Upper Darby say another five-pound brick of weed was delivered this week to a woman in the town, who was hoping it was the package she had ordered from Babies R Us.

To the woman's dismay, there were no baby supplies, just $10,000 worth of weed -- which she promptly turned over to police.

The package sent to the woman also came with an Arizona return address, which have both been determined to be fake.

While it's not clear whether the packages actually originated from Arizona, people around the state have been known to use mailmen for special deliveries.
