Summary

A package filled with hard drugs was recently sent to their shop in Kistilano

It had insufficient postage, and the return address was listed for their shop

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A box full of hard drugs has apparently, accidentally been sent to a book store in Vancouver.

The owner of Pulp Fiction Books in Vancouver, Christopher Brayshaw, says a package filled with hard drugs was recently sent to one of their locations in Kistilano. Staff opened it up to find what appeared to be a plastic video game cartridge.


“What it was inside was definitely not a video game. It was packed full of, what I will euphemistically call, hard drugs,” he says. “The staff member called me very concerned, wondering what the next step was and we determined the next step was probably for her to carry it down to the local community police office, which she did.”

Brayshaw says it had insufficient postage, and the return address was listed for their shop, but the delivery address was somewhere across the country.
