While it may seem like a dream come true to many, one family near the Mexican border in Nogales, AZ was left feeling panicked after a package of marijuana fell from the sky, busted through the roof of their carport, and crushed a dog house.
Homeowner, Maya Donnelly was asleep in her bedroom on the other side of the house when the package containing roughly 26 pounds of cannabis fell through the carport. The loud clash woke her up, but she assumed it was thunder and went back to sleep.
The next morning she was surprised to see a hole in the carport, debris on the ground, and a wrapped bundle in the dog house below the hole. Suspecting it was drugs, Donnelly called her husband first, and then immediately dialed 911. Of the incident, Donnelly reported,
“It’s all right on top of our dog’s house. It just made a perfectly round hole through our carport.”
Nogales Police Chief Derek Arnson reported that this is the first time he has been called regarding a bundle of marijuana falling from the sky onto a structure. Suspecting that the package was accidentally or mistakenly thrown from a plane used to smuggle more bundles of the plant, Arnson stated,
“Someone definitely made a mistake, and who knows what the outcome of that mistake might be for them.
Although the Donnelly family will have to pay repair bills out of pocket, they report just being thankful that no one was injured.
