A gun collector from Sidney, Ohio opened his mail-order gun safe to discover about 300 pounds of Marijuana stashed inside.
Shelby County Sheriff John Lehart said that he got a call from a local resident June 19 reporting that he found the neatly packed drugs inside the vault that he had ordered to store his guns. The safe is sold by Champion Safe Company, based in Provo, Utah, and manufactured by prison inmates in Nogales, Mexico.
The unnamed Sidney resident had reportedly hoped to house his collection of firearms, including 24 long rifles and 12 shotguns within the 1,000-pound, 6-foot-tall safe.
According to investigators, the 285 pounds of pot has an estimated street value of $420,000.
