$100K Drug Bust Made Thanks to Wrong Address

If you're going to have someone ship you a package of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine via FedEx, make sure the sender has the correct address. Three Houston residents are likely cursing the person who mislabeled just such a package after it arrived at the wrong residence and the owner alerted the police, the Houston Chronicle reports. A tip directed cops to a nearby house, where they say they found Michael Taylor, Stephanie Adams, and Leslie Peck holed up with $100,000 worth of drugs and a weapons arsenal—as well as Adams' 5-year-old kid, who was reportedly napping while Mom did meth in the next room.

Police allegedly hit the narcotics mother lode when they entered the house with the "correct" address: In addition to the drugs in the package, they also say they found LSD, hashish, pain pills, steroids, morphine, codeine, and even prescription cancer medication. Oh, and also a bunch of shotguns, handguns, and a semi-automatic rifle. The three were arrested on drug and weapons charges and currently have a new address: the Harris County Jail. (This Mexican drug lord was busted hiding right out in the open.)
