Cocaine Tampons

A bargain shopper at a Salt Lake City discount store got a lot more than she bargained for. According to, the woman bought a box of tampons, in which she found packets of cocaine.

She said, "I never thought this would happen to me." She claims to be shocked at her discovery. She said, "It didn't look like it was tampered at all." She purchased the item at a store that had the reputation for giving good deals on items other stores did not want. It was not until the next day that the woman noticed she got a lot more than tampons.

She said, "There was a cellophane filled with white powder." A police test revealed that powder was cocaine. ABC4 sat down with the store's manager, but this was the first he had heard about this. He said, "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." Police were unable to comment on their investigation into finding the source of the drugs.
