A man from Redwood City was arrested after checking on his FedEx package that did not get to his recipient in the Philippines.
The two boxes containing three kilograms of methamphetamine and 100 grams of cocaine he dropped off at a FedEx outlet were seized at Customs.
After calling the courier on the status of the packages, police were able to track the sender down and delivered him to jail instead.
