Man orders new TV, gets military-grade rifle
August 9, 2012 (WASHINGTON) (WLS) -- A man in Washington, D.C., anxiously awaiting delivery of his new flat-screen TV got a shocking surprise when a high-powered rifle arrived instead.
The UPS truck showed up at the home of Seth Horvitz for the delivery. He'd ordered a TV from Amazon.com. But when he opened the box it contained a military-grade weapon.
The label had Seth's name and address, but the invoice inside was made out to a gun store in Pennsylvania. He called the police, who came and confiscated the rifle. It's a top-of-the-line, high-caliber, semi-automatic that sells for more than $2,000.
