The woman says she immediately called police after receiving the package.

Choosing to stay anonymous, the woman - from Rock Hill, South Carolina - was expecting her package on Sunday but was given a box stuffed with oxycodone pills.

A SC woman expecting the delivery of a yoga mat instead received almost 20,000 illegal narcotic pills.

Investigators said they're grateful she had the sense to call them and report it.

The York County Drug Unit is now handling the investigation.

In the Rock Hill case, the scheme might have been successful if not for a misspelled street name, which prompted the post office to look up the woman's address and forward it to her new residence, according to the station. In fact, more than 20,000 oxycodone pills were handed to her, worth about $400,000.

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", Commander Brown added.

Once police officers arrived on scene, the woman said an unknown person had shipped a box of drugs to her home. 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 are reportedly working to trace the botched delivery back to the person in California who sent it.

The woman who received the package lives in a neighborhood off Ebinport Road.
