An Ohio man orders a gun safe on the Internet and gets more than he asked for, more than 250 pounds of drugs. Steve Baker tells us what he did after this bizarre delivery and what police are doing to find the person responsible. This is a safe used to store guns. Empty now, but it wasn't back on June 19 when delivered to the home of a Shelby County man who ordered it onine. It was loaded with this, 285 pounds of marijuana in 10 bales, probably direct from Mexico where his safe was manufactured. "We had a Shelby County citizen who called and said that I had ordered a gun safe and when it was delivered, I opened it up and there were things in there that I did not order," says Sheriff John Lenhart of the Shelby County Sheriff's Department. The marijuana has a street value at more than $420,000. "The unusual thing about it is, that you need to know, it was made, as i mentioned, in Mexico," says Sheriff Lenhart. "It was made in Mexico and it was transported into the state. The driver, we worked with the DEA, the driver, who initially brought it into the state, he's missing. We're looking for him, and my guess is the bad guys are looking for him, too." While deputies waited nearly two months to release information about this pot, the case is not closed. Federal, state and county officials are still attempting to back-track the load. Several layers of special paper and aluminum kept the marijuana from being detected until found in Shelby County.
