Attention, Home Depot Shoppers...

This just in from today's Boston Globe-

June 14, 2006

SOUTHWICK, Mass. --A plumber who bought a bathroom vanity for a home renovation found something else in the box: a stash of 40 pounds of marijuana and three grams of cocaine. Police did not identify the plumber or the store, though WWLP-TV reported the vanity was purchased at the Home Depot in Chicopee. Southwick Detective Lt. David Ricardi told The Republican of Springfield that at least one other vanity containing a drug stash had been discovered, though he declined to say where.

That's why I do all my shopping at Home Depot. What? You didn't think it was for the quality of the merchandise did you?

Man! All the stuff that I bought at Home Depot, and I never found more than a splinter. And I *did* buy a sink from them once. Not the vanity, though, dammit.

mike, phebes & ckw- maybe you should go back. This morning it is reported that they found another stash in anothyer vaity in the same Home Depot, two more stashes in vanities in a HD in a nearby town, and a 5th at an "undisclosed store".

Maybe the smart thing to do is simply buy HD stock- I understand their June sales figures are about to go through the roof...
