A SC woman received the surprise of her life after placing an online order for a yoga mat.

A SC woman got much more than she was expecting when she opened a package from the post office.

According to local police, the Rock Hill resident was waiting for her package on September 30 when her mailman handed her a box around 2 p.m. local time.

However, the drugs were forwarded to her new address instead.

The county's drug unit commander, Marvin Brown, believes the package was probably sent there to be picked up by a waiting dealer.
