Amazon customers in Orlando, Florida, are upset after they opened what they believed was four empty plastic storage bins but found a lot more inside.

The bins came with 65 pounds of marijuana inside.

The marijuana was in boxes inside of totes and as soon as they opened the bins, they were hit by the smell. They immediately called the police.

"They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins," said the woman. "When the first officer got here, she was in disbelief."

Police seized the drugs and launched an investigation. Amazon gave the customers a $150 gift card for their inconvenience but said they were "unable to do anything else at this time."
