Yikes! Just imagine what went through the mind of Sophia Stockton when a bag of white powder fell out of her recently delivered textbook “Understanding Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives and Issues.”

Thinking Anthrax Stockton took the bag to the police and lo and behold:

“I told them white powder was in my terrorism textbook and so I put it on the table and they’re like, ‘oh, okay,’ And so he went back and tested it,” Stockton recalls. “ He comes back and says, ‘you didn’t happen to order some cocaine with your textbook, did you?’ And I was like, no!”

Police estimate the bag contained $400 of cocaine.
Though ordered through Amazon the book originated from a company called Warehouse Deals who claim to be an “ subsidiary and also an Amazon marketplace seller.”
