Sophia Stockton, a junior at Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe, Kan., ordered a textbook for one of her classes from Amazon. What she didn't know is that the book came with a bonus - a bag full of cocaine.
Stockton bought Understanding Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives and Issues for a spring course, and, when she began flipping through the pages, a small bag of white powder fell out. Fearing it was anthrax, Stockton brought it to authorities. I told them white powder was in my terrorism textbook, she told WPTV in Kans. She said after the police tested the powder [the police officer] comes back and says, 'you didn't happen to order some cocaine with your textbook, did you?' And I was like, no!
Police said that there was approximately $400 worth of cocaine. Stockton said that though she ordered it through Amazon Marketplace, and not Amazon directly, the book was sold through Amazon, and came in official Amazon packaging. Police said they are looking into the cocaine could have come from.
