A Central Florida couple was shocked when they opened their Amazon order and found a large amount of marijuana

The couple, who wish to remain anoymous, said that they first noticed something was off when the containers were far heavier than one would expect for a container.

Upon opening the box, the couple was hit with a strong odor.

"They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins", the customer told the station. WFTV said that the couple tried to get the situation figured out with Amazon but never actually spoke with a supervisor.

So, this summer when she and her fiancé needed to put some things in storage, they placed an order for 27-gallon storage totes. Even though the marijuana was seized, the couple added that they are still afraid the suspected drug dealers may come to their home looking for the package.

She asked not to be identified.

Orlando Police have yet to make an arrest, and the investigation is ongoing. Amazon gave the customers a $150 gift card for their inconvenience but said they were "unable to do anything else at this time".

"There was no concern for a customer's safety", the shopper said, reports WFTV9. The package was supposed to be containing 27-gallon storage totes but in fact weighed 93.5 pounds and had been shipped by Amazon's Warehouse Deals program via UPS from a MA facility.

The woman said she wanted an explanation and an apology for the incident.

The couple felt it was necessary to sleep elsewhere for a few days out of fear someone would break into their home looking for the potent package.

Amazon has issued a statement saying it worked with the customers to ensure their safety and will assist law enforcement investigating the case.
