SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A bargain shopper at a Salt Lake discount store gets a lot more than she bargained for. The woman bought a box of tampons, but instead she found packets of cocaine.
"I never thought that would happen to me," said Cindy Davidson, Taylorsville resident.
Davidson tells ABC 4 she got quite a shock after discovering a box of tampons she bought was really just stuffed with illegal drugs.
"I didn't look like it was tampered at all," she said.
Last Saturday Davidson came shopping to the NPS store in Salt Lake City, because she heard she could get a good deal on items that other stores didn't want. She saw a discount on tampons and bought some. But she said it wasn't until the next day, when she opened the box, that she noticed she got a lot more than that.
"There was cellophane filled with white powder," said Davidson.
After a police test, that powder turned out to be cocaine.
Thursday ABC 4 sat down with a manager at the NPS store to find out how it got there, but they claim this is the first they'd heard about it.
“Without knowing the customer, without knowing the product specifically on this situation we just have no information to try and figure out where it came from," said Stan Alexander, NPS, Director of Security.
For Davidson she just knows it freaked her out.
"I've never seen anything like that so it was weird," she said.
ABC 4 talked to police to find out where the cocaine came from, but they weren't willing to talk about their investigation.
