(Image source: The Daily Mai)l BY LOGAN TITTLE A special delivery came for the United Nations in New York and no—it wasn’t the usual gift basket. ABC affiliate, KXTV has the scoop.. “New York police and federal drug authorities are investigating a shipment of cocaine that was delivered to United Nations headquarters. It was no small delivery.” The BBC reports the mail room picked up a 35-and-a-half-pound package of the powder, setting off the security alarm. The Telegraph says the sender wasn’t being too careful. “The drugs, worth around $2 million, were hidden in hollowed-out books inside of bags that carried the global body's famous blue emblem... Staff at the UN identified the bags as ‘obvious fakes’ … (saying) the bags were like flour sacks but were the wrong color or material to be any kind of official bag.” The Daily Mail reports the cocaine cache came from Mexico City through Cincinnati, but without a name or address. And how it got into the hands of the UN? TVNZ reports the copied UN logo and lack of address didn’t give the package many places to go— "What happened was the company looked at it and said, ‘OK, I guess these are from the United Nations because they have a seal on it,’ and then proceeded to ship it to the United Nations.” CNN reports no intended recipient has been found and it doesn’t look like there will be a return to sender in this situation either.
