The Rock Hill Herald reports the woman told Rock Hill police she was handed a package by the mailman Saturday and found the pills.

- A woman in SC called police Saturday afternoon after she reportedly received a large package of illegal drugs in the mail, worth around $400,000, instead of the yoga mat she ordered.

Brown said they found there were two bags of about 10,000 pills each.

The police reportedly seized the drugs and notified the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, who have opened an investigation.

Police think whoever sent them meant for them to go to the woman's old address, which is now a vacant apartment. However, a spelling error on the package saw it intercepted by the postal service, who looked up the woman's new address to forward it on.

Drug agents said they're getting a new call every week about drugs shipped through the mail.

Brown added: 'The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were'.

Instead, it was a heavy box filled with $400,000 worth of illegal oxycodone. He said unwitting people find that those in the drug trade use fake or wrong addresses and names, then wait for packages to be delivered.

They believe that they are probably counterfeit and could have come from Mexico. Investigators are now working to figure out who sent them and who was supposed to pick them up.

Neighbor Nicole Riddle was stunned to hear that more than 20,000 oxycodone pills were delivered just doors away from her by mistake.
