An Arizona family felt the blunt of a recent drug smuggling operation gone wrong.
After hearing noises late at night and dismissing them as thunder, Maya Donnelly said she woke up on the morning of September 8th only to discover an object had crashed through the roof of the carport at her family’s Nogales, AZ home, near the Arizona-Mexico border, according to a report by the Associated Press. Inside was marijuana. A lot of marijuana.
Specifically, authorities said the package -- which crash landed on a (luckily) empty plastic dog crate -- contained about 28lbs of weed with a street value of approximately $10,000 and likely fell in error from an ultralight aircraft used for drug smuggling. After consulting with her husband, Donnelly called 911, but why she did that is anyone's guess.
"That's what everybody says: 'Why did you call 911?'" Donnelly was quoted as saying in the report. "But how can you have a clear conscience, right? We could have made lots of home repairs with that."
