A Green Bay Wisconsin woman opened her refurbished vacuum cleaner she received for Christmas and discovered a load of drugs.
The woman found two pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 2.2 pounds of cocaine shrink wrapped inside the box, with a street value of about $280,000. Authorities believe a smuggler likely inserted the drugs in the box before it was shipped from the Juarez, Mexico, area, where it had been reconditioned.
The vacuum was purchased at a department store that is assisting in the investigation.
