Man orders new TV, gets military-grade rifle

Thursday, August 09, 2012

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 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.
