A Home Depot Surprise

This story from Reuters is wild:
Police are investigating Massachusetts outlets of Home Depot Inc. after discovering caches of cocaine and marijuana stuffed into merchandise at three local branches of the retail chain.

The investigation began after a shopper found 40 pounds (18.1 kilograms) of marijuana and three kilograms (6.6 pounds) of cocaine in a bathroom cabinet he had bought at Home Depot, said Lt. David Ricardi of the Southwick, Massachusetts, Police Department.

The shopper, a contractor who is not a target of the investigation, bought the cabinet on Monday in Chicopee, Massachusetts, about 90 miles west of Boston.

The drugs have an estimated street value of more than $200,000, Ricardi said.

Just to clarify, a plumber bought a bathroom fixture at home depot and received $200,000 worth of drugs. Can you imagine the look on that guys face when he got home?
We have been thinking about sprucing up our bathroom somewhat, perhaps we should check before we leave the store.
