Update: The green keeps on flowing at City Blue, where another 30 pounds of marijuana was just delivered today to the Upper Darby clothing store that received 60 pounds of pot yesterday, according to Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. At this point, the store manager has to be very confused or very happy. Police are still investigating the origin of the special deliveries.
Just how high was the dazed-and-confused dude who sent 60 pounds of pot to an Upper Darby clothing store yesterday?
That's something the authorities are trying to weed out.
According to Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, two packages, weighing 30 pounds each, were delivered to the City Blue clothing store on 69th Street near Ludlow around 11 a.m. yesterday.
The manager of the store did not recognize the name of the woman the packages were addressed to, but they did bear the address of the clothing store and the shipment was from California, police said.
So the manager opened the packages and found the grass on the other side of the country really is greener when he was greeted with 60 pounds of marijuana.
The upstanding manager called police right away. Chitwood said authorities estimated the street value of the weed was $3,000 per pound or $180,000 total.
Authorities are currently investigating who sent the packages and who was the intended recipient.
"Ain't going to be no Merry Christmas on 69th Street," Chitwood said.
