(Scroll down for video) A couple in Florida, said that they did not sleep at their home for a few nights out of fear after they received marijuana with their order of plastic bins.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, said that she and her fiance feared that a drug dealer would break into their home to recover the marijuana that was delivered to them.

The Amazon customers ordered four plastic containers, and when they picked them up to bring into their home, they felt too heavy.

After opening them, the couple said the smell was overwhelming. They soon discovered the reason. The 27-gallon storage containers came with 65 pounds of marijuana.

They immediately called the Orlando police, who confiscated the drugs.

The items had been shipped by Amazon’s Warehouse Deals via UPS from a facility in Massachusetts.

The couple reached out to Amazon. They did not receive the apology they were looking for, but they did get a $150 gift card.

Police are now working with Amazon to investigate the incident.
