When a marijuana bundle dropped from the sky in the wee hours of the morning it made a sound like loud thunder as it crashed through an Arizona family’s carport. Maya Donnelly was in bed and she rolled back over and went to sleep thinking a storm was coming.
According to Fox News on September 28, it wasn’t until Donnelly got out of bed that morning that she realized something fell through the roof of her carport, landing right on top of the dog house, which was flattened. That sound she heard wasn’t rolling thunder, but a bundle of marijuana dropped from the sky.
She saw a bulky plastic-wrapped bundle on the ground that put a perfect hole in the roof of the carport. The family and their dog were not hurt when the illegal product came barreling through their roof.
According to AOL News, She called her husband at work who told her to call the police. When police came out they were able to determine that Donnelly had roughly 26 pounds of marijuana drop onto the roof of her home as she slept. That package is worth about $10,000, said the police.
The marijuana fell from an aircraft of some sort, possibly a drone, report police. They suspect the person who was in charge of the drop let this package go a little bit early and totally missed their mark.
The Donnelly’s live in Nogales, which is near the Mexican border, so police believe the marijuana was smuggled in from Mexico and headed up north, not too far from the mistaken drop at the Donnelly home. Now that it has been publicized that the package was found and handed over to police, the Donnelly family doesn’t have to worry about its intended owners coming around looking for their product.
Nogales Police Chief Derek Arnson said that in his three years on the force this is the first time he saw a bundle of drugs hit a building. He also said, “Someone definitely made a mistake, and who knows what the outcome of that mistake might be for them.”
Donnelly said folks are asking her why she called 911? With $10,000 worth of pot she could have made a killing. She laughs and said that never crossed her mind. Besides wouldn’t you want it off the premises because you know someone will be out looking for that bundle if it wasn’t in police custody.
Police don’t think that the Donnelly, her husband and three teen daughters are in any danger from the smugglers now that its well known the cops have the pot. Police will beef up their patrols in the neighborhood just in case there is someone looking for that package that fell from the sky.
