SEATTLE – A Seattle woman just wanted to crochet animal hats and found a crochet kit over the weekend at a second-hand store. The Seattle Police Department said what she found inside the box was a shock.

She called 911 when she found a heavy package wrapped in yellow rubber inside the crochet kit. It gave off what police call “an odd odor.” Inscribed on the outside was “100 %.”

Police responded and officers took possession of the package. They confirmed that there was one kilogram of cocaine inside the wrapping, weighing 2.2 pounds. The package has been placed into evidence and an investigation has been launched.
