She opened the package and found the narcotic pills, then called police.

A SC woman got much more than she was expecting when she opened a package from the post office.

- A woman in SC called police Saturday afternoon after she reportedly received a large package of illegal drugs in the mail, worth around $400,000, instead of the yoga mat she ordered.

According to York County drug unit commander Marvin Brown, "vacant apartments, homes where people have gone to work for the day", are usually where drugs are shipped as someone can be there to await the arrival of the package.

Investigators said they're grateful she had the sense to call them and report it.

Drug unit Commander Marvin Brown said the package was likely meant to be delivered to the woman's previous address, which she recently moved from and is now vacant, WSOC reported.

However, the street was misspelled on the package, the post office caught the mistake, and forwarded the package to the woman's current address. WSOCTV reported on Monday that the woman received a package of 20,000 oxycodone pills worth $400,000, instead.

"It's scary to think that something like that could be right down the road and so, I'll say, easily accessible", said neighbor Nicole Riddle.

Now agents are trying to figure out where the package was really headed.

The woman, who asked not to be identified, told NBC Charlotte she had no idea why the pills were shipped to her.
