Student cocaine terrorism book
but it helped a college junior learn the lesson: buyer beware, according to a WPTV report.
Sophia Stockton, a junior at Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe, Kansas, ordered a textbook called Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives and Issues for her Spring semester.
After flipping through the pages on Monday she “discovered a bag of white powder had fallen to the ground,” the station reports.
Fearing the mysterious substance was anthrax, the college brought the bag to the local police department the next day.
“He comes back and says ‘you didn’t happen to order some cocaine with your textbook, did you?’ And I was like, ‘no!’”
The police estimated there may have been up to $400 worth of cocaine in the baggie, and officials are investigating where the drugs may have come from, according to WTPTV.
Stockton had purchased the pre-owned textbook through Warehouse Deals, an Amazon storefront that offers “deep discounts on open-box, like-new, refurbished or used products that are in good condition but do not meet Amazon.com’s rigorous standards of ‘new.’”
