In the incident around 2 p.m. Saturday, in the northwest part of Rock Hill, the woman told police she was waiting for the yoga mat to be delivered, and was handed a package by the mailman, according to an incident report from the Rock Hill Police Department.

A woman in SC got quite a surprise after opening a package she thought contained a yoga mat she had ordered, but found almost 20,000 illegal pills valued at $400,000 instead.

Inside the package, the two bags contained approximately 10,000 pills each at a price of $20 a pill.

The police reportedly seized the drugs and notified the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, who have opened an investigation. Someone may have been using that address as a drop point, he said.The post office forwarded the package to her current address after noticing the misspelled street name on the package.

Police say more than 20,000 oxycodone pills were inside the package, valued at over $400,000.

Apparently, the box was supposed to be sent to the woman's old apartment, which is now vacant.

"The dealers weren't as intelligent as they thought they were", Brown said.

The pills have been taken into evidence by authorities, who will try to trace the package to find out who sent it, who was meant to receive it, and where the drugs would have ended up. She immediately called police after opening the box.

They believe that they are probably counterfeit and could have come from Mexico.
