Fifty pounds of pot discovered inside newly purchased furniture

BILLERICA, Mass. — A couple finds a surprise inside a vanity for their new bathroom.

When they opened the cabinet, which was bought by a contractor at a Home Depot in Tewksbury, the couple found inside 50 pounds of marijuana.

Investigators say the box does not look like it was tampered with.

Both local police and the Drug Enforcement Administration are investigating.

No comment as of yet has been made from Home Depot on the drug discovery.
