OLYMPIA, Wash. — Workers at a furniture store in Olympia got quite the surprise on Thursday morning after they discovered a package with furniture full of marijuana.
“The smell was overwhelming,” worker Marty Zaffina said.
Zaffina said he signed the delivery when it arrived at Hawks Prairie Home Furnishings, located at 400 Cooper Point Road Southwest, a couple of days ago, but it wasn’t until Thursday that they discovered the box was still unopened in the storage area.
“Jeff, the owner, was joking ‘You know what would be funny if this thing was full of pot’ and we all chuckled,” Zaffina said.
Inside the box, they found a red ottoman with 25 pounds of marijuana stashed inside.
“We open it up, took one quick look, Jeff shuts the lid, and the joke was reality,” Zffina said. “There was as much weed as you could stuff in the ottoman. It was quite overwhelming.”
The ottoman was wrapped in green cellophane and had a packing slip inside.
The box was shipped from FedEx in Olympia to a South Carolina furniture store on
