The woman told a local news channel that the pills were spilling out the sides of the package, so she didn't hesitate to call the police.

The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, said she was expecting a yoga mat to be delivered that day and was shocked when she was handed the box full of oxycodone pills, WSOC reported.

A SC woman who thought she was unboxing the yoga mat she had ordered from Walmart found something much more nefarious - $400,000 in oxycodone pills, according to WSOC.

The commander of the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, Marvin Brown, said they found two bags of around 10,000 pills each.

But the address was misspelled on the package and the post office sent the it to the woman's current address.

Brown says the drugs were mailed from California.

Brown speculated that the package may have been meant for delivery to the woman's former address at a condo which is now vacant.

"The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were", Brown said. He said unwitting people find that those in the drug trade use fake or wrong addresses and names, then wait for packages to be delivered.

Police seized the pills, which they believe are counterfeit oxycodone from Mexico.

Now agents are trying to figure out where the package was really headed.

The man called police, asking them to open the package.

The woman's neighbor, Nicole Riddle, was reportedly stunned by the delivery.
