Drug caches found in Home Depot vanities

Home Depot said that it will support law enforcement in any way possible to help bring those responsible to justice.

Home Depot Incorporated
Massachusetts
Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)

(CNN) -- Large quantities of drugs were found inside merchandise from at least two Home Depot stores in Massachusetts, and authorities are investigating, police said Wednesday.

A contractor late last week discovered two 50-pound "bricks" of marijuana wrapped in plastic bags inside a bathroom vanity he had purchased at a Home Depot store in Tewksbury, said Chief of Detectives Lt. Dennis Peterson.

The estimated street value of the marijuana is around $145,000, Peterson said. (Watch as do-it-yourself goes to pot -- 1:30)

Similar incidents have occurred in other parts of the state.

A plumber purchased a vanity in western Massachusetts on Monday in which he later found 3 kilograms of cocaine and around 40 pounds of marijuana, with a total estimated street value of $250,000, according to the Southwick Police Department.

Southwick Police Lt. David A. Ricardi said the item was purchased at "a local hardware store" but would not confirm it came from The Home Depot.

According to Peterson, a third individual discovered large quantities of illegal drugs inside Home Depot merchandise.

Peterson would not provide the details of that incident but said it was part of the overall investigation and that Tewksbury police were working with their Southwick counterparts and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Tewksbury police and DEA officials conducted a search Tuesday of about 12 Home Depot stores statewide and found other bathroom vanities that contained drugs, Peterson said. He would not elaborate on how many drug caches were discovered in the search.

In each incident being investigated by Tewksbury Police, all of the merchandise boxes originated from a Texas location and were distributed through one Massachusetts warehouse, Peterson said.

"I'm sure the packages were being shipped to the distribution center and someone was supposed to intercept them," Peterson said. "So that person [who was supposed to intercept the packages] either wasn't on duty that day or the packages were marked wrong."

The Southwick and Tewksbury Police Departments both said The Home Depot was cooperating fully with their investigations, and no one employed by the company is a suspect at this time.

Both departments also said none of the customers who purchased the vanities that contained drugs are suspects.

In a written statement, The Home Depot said, "The company is cooperating with authorities as they investigate this matter, and we will support law enforcement in any way possible to help bring those responsible to justice."

I'm going on down to Home Depot. Gonna shake a few boxes. Maybe pry open a couple or two. Who knows? Maybe even by a vanity ... or three or four or seven.

On the news they said that there are probably other similar vanity boxes across the U.S..

If you ask me, this whole thing smacks of that Willy Wanker movie, where everybody tried to find the candy with the winning ticket. I wonder if this is actually some sort of covert promotion by Home Depot?

And just for the record, I'd flush that face-drano down a Home Depot toilet. But two 50 lb. bricks ...

I hear you Rusty. I wonder if they'll let you open the box before a purchase?

After all the investigations and trials and appeals are over,
you know what the Massachusetts DEA does with all that stuff:

I work at The Home Depot. To answer your question, yes.

And, let me give you some "box scores" you may find compelling:

The Home Depot, at which I am employed (in AZ), has a 70% turnover rate.

They require a drug screening as a final pre-requisite to all prospective applicants that they WANT to hire. 16% of applicants pass the drug screening.

There lives a fairly "wicked" culture of individuals in THD where I am currently employed. I constantly try to provide a light of inspiration to my fellow workers. A few sincerely appreciate it. Most don't understand it. Several hate me for being happy- and they don't even understand why.

I went from spending a year in a ministry to working in this place. It's been six months and I still am shocked nearly daily. Alot of people are hurting, and I try to make a difference. If not for the customers I would not have been able to do it.

This "season" is nearly over, as I have a wonderful new opportunity surfacing in two weeks. I'm loving life.

God Bless,

Michael
