SIDNEY, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities in Ohio say a man who ordered a gun safe online opened it up only to discover 280 pounds of marijuana inside.
Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart in western Ohio says the safe was made in Nogales, Mexico and that it was sent by truck to Ohio.
He says the marijuana has a street value of $420,000.
Federal authorities who are investigating say the truck driver who brought the shipment into the United States is now missing.
The Ohio sheriff says that truck was carrying a full shipment of safes, but none of the others contained any drugs.
He says the safe with the marijuana was delivered to Ohio in June, but authorities have kept quiet about it while they looked into how the safe got into the U.S.
