Package delivery mix-up leads to drug bust in Houston
FedEx delivering a package to the wrong address led to three suspects being jailed in Houston on drugs and weapons charges.
Police were tipped off after a neighbor received the package and found drugs in it including cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin.
They then raided a home in the 11500 block of Normont in northwest Harris County where they found a “significant drug operation.”
An estimated $100,000 of drugs were seized along with guns and $6,700 in cash.
Michael Taylor, 45, Stephanie Adams, 30, and Leslie Peck, 32, face a number of drug and weapons charges.
Marijuana, pain pills, cocaine, morphine, LSD, hashish, steroids, black tar heroin and codeine were just some of the drugs seized, authorities said. Scales, baggies and other paraphernalia were also found at the scene.
Also found were a variety of medications typically prescribed to cancer patients, deputies said, which they believe could have been stolen from a pharmacy.
