Woman Finds $280K Worth Of Drugs In Vacuum

A Wisconsin mother received a vacuum from her children as a Christmas present. The gift quickly lost its dull nature when she opened it up to discover a stash of drugs encased inside.

AOL reports the vacuum contained crystal meth and cocaine that law enforcement officials estimated was worth more than a quarter million dollars. The vacuum had been refurbished and shipped from the Juarez, Mexico area, to the department store at which it was purchased.

What’s the oddest thing you’ve found inside a box you bought off the shelf?
