ROCK HILL, S.C. - A Rock Hill woman walked up to meet her mail carrier thinking the yoga mat she ordered from Walmart had arrived.
Instead, the postal worker handed her a heavy box, and a bag of pills, that had spilled from it. In all, there were more than 20,000 oxycodone pills, worth roughly $400,000.
The woman who received the package lives in a neighborhood off Ebinport Road. She didn't want to go on camera, but told Channel 9 there were so many pills, they were spilling from the packaging.
She immediately called police.
York County drug agents gave Channel 9 photos of the drugs, and the box they came in, shipped from Newport Beach, California.
Drug unit commander Marvin Brown said drugs are often shipped to empty homes where someone is sitting and waiting for the package to arrive.
"Vacant apartments, homes where people have gone to work for the day," Brown said.
Brown said it is likely the package was supposed to be sent to the woman's former address at a condo near Dave Lyle Boulevard. It's now vacant and someone was probably using that address as a drop point.
However, the street was misspelled on the package, the post office caught the mistake, and forwarded the package to the woman's current address.
"The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were," Brown said.(snip)
Brown said his team will try to trace the package and also see if they can find out where it was headed, and who was supposed to receive it.
The pills have all been taken into evidence by Rock Hill police. Officers said they are likely counterfeit oxycodone pressed from powder into pills in Mexico.

Hey man, whatever your path to enlightenment.
Who am I to judge; Isn’t yoga satanic or something?
Yoga, is OK. What is not OK, is fat women wearing yoga pants.
The Feds will arrest and prosecute her anyway.
Wouldn’t doubt it.
And shoot her dogs.
Everybody’s got a few aches and pains. But, she probably didn’t divert a few pills for herself because... there was no packing slip!
Maybe the order of tracing the package and making a lot of noise about tracing the package should have been reversed.
Or...because it’s not safe! Home-made and other clandestine operation pills can be marked and colored to resemble known medications, but contain very potent other drugs, and in uncontrolled amounts and purities, instead of or in addition to the marked drug. This is one reason the current overdose epidemic is hitting the country’s ER’s and morgues. People think or are told they are buying Methadone or Oxycodone but instead are getting Fentanyl analogs, some of which are hundreds or thousands of times more potent than Morphine.
They have to shoot her dog first
I have a book entitle “What Would Buddha Do?” It applies Buddhism to everyday scenarios, and was of great help in understanding myself.
I think Buddha would oppose yoga pants on fatties.
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she’s not really ill
There’s a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day
Like I said, “no packing slip.” Meaning, who could possibly know what the contents were?
Yeah, they ought to solve the case first. Now someone has probably fled the country or been killed by a cartel.
As I was saying.....
