23 Pound Package Of Weed Falls From Sky, Smashes Through Family’s Roof & Crushes Dog House
ABC NEWS – Maya and Bill Donnelly woke up to a loud, crashing sound at their Arizona home in the border town of Nogales, thinking the boom was thunder from a lingering rainstorm before going back to sleep, authorities said.
So imagine the shock later that morning of Sept. 8 when they discovered a large plastic package in the destroyed remains of their German shepherd’s doghouse; a 23-pound parcel that police say contained about $10,000 worth of marijuana.
The illegal drugs had likely fallen from a smuggler’s aircraft that had taken off from Mexico, officials said.
“The package likely fell out of the sky,” Nogales Police Department spokesman Det. Robert Fierros told ABC News. “We have seen ultralight [plane] activity in our town before, but never seen a package that is assumed to be from an ultralight fall so close to the border.”
Fierros explained that such drug drops usually occur in the desert and on the outskirts of Nogales and neighboring town of Rio Rico.
The family has not responded to ABC News’ request for comment.
The 23-pound package busted a hole through the plywood roof of the family’s home carport, which is about 1,000 feet from the U.S.-Mexico border, officials said.
Fierros said he was relieved no one was harmed.
“Thankfully, nobody was hurt,” he said. “Had this bundle actually fallen on someone or a pet there would have been some injuries. In this case, we were fortunate enough not to have to deal with that.”
Well, this is probably the only time where I wished I lived near the Mexican boarder. Imagine that. You hear a loud crash at night and you think “Shit, probably just some thunder.”
Then all of a sudden, BOOM! 24 pound bag-o-grass falls from the sky and suddenly it’s fucking Christmas!
And I’ll never understand why people get police and news crews involved for shit like this. Like if it was heroine or meth, OK. But that’s 24 pounds of grass, man! $10,000 dollars worth! Probably WAYYYYY more if you do it the way it’s done around here. Word on the streets is that a gram of weed goes for $20 bucks. So do the math and why on earth would you get rid of it? You either A.) sell it fast. Or B.) smoke it for the next 10 years of your life for free. Calling the police is never an option. Only a fool would return a Christmas present like that.
PS- And you can’t trust people who give 24 pounds of unexpected FREE grass to the police. That’s just as sinister as it gets. Get out of my face with that shit.
