And here I thought that Big Brown and FedEx trucks mostly brought goodies from shopping or expedited business materials. But one drug pusher decided that his business would do best by FedEx--which luckily then took a shipment to the wrong address.
When it absolutely, positively had to get there, someone in Florida used Fed-Ex to ship marijuana to addresses in the Baltimore area. But the shipping company botched one of the deliveries, triggering an undercover operation that led to the arrest of a city man and the seizure of 600 pounds of the drug, police said yesterday.
Police were tipped off when four boxes were mistakenly delivered Tuesday to a Northeast Baltimore resident who opened one and discovered a "large shrink wrapped bundle of a green plant material," charging documents say. City officers and Maryland State Police troopers posed as FedEx employees the next day to snare the intended recipient of the 200-pound shipment.
