PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has sued FedEx,
claiming the company mistakenly sent her a package containing seven
pounds of marijuana, then gave her address to the intended recipients,
who later showed up at her door.

Maryangela Tobin of Plymouth said in the suit filed Feb. 12 that by
disclosing her address, the company violated state privacy laws and put
herself and her children in danger.

"I feel like the safety of my daughters and myself was invaded and it
makes things complicated," she told WBZ-TV. "I walk into my house first
every time, my kids don't."

Tobin said she thought the package was a birthday present for her
daughter, because when she opened it, she found candles, pixie sticks
and peppermint. There was also something she thought was potpourri, but
it was marijuana.

Tobin said that about an hour later, a man knocked on her door
looking for the package, while two men sat in a vehicle in her driveway,
waiting. She said she didn't have it, and bolted and slammed the door.
Tobin claims FedEx gave out her address, which led the men to her home.

Police made an arrest, but Tobin said now she's worried about retribution.

Memphis, Tenn.-based FedEx said it doesn't comment on pending lawsuits.
