Default strange delivery

Earlier today a relative of mine found a fed ex package on their front porch, it was addressed to them so she opens it only to find a black case with a h&k ump inside. Despite me thinking it would go well in my cabinet I told her to report it to the police. Upon further inspection it had her address but not her name on it. Has anyone had this happen before, and how would you handle this?

If it is actually a select fire UMP someone is in a world of trouble.

Did it come from and individual or a business, from inside the state or out?

It came from a company that does gun mods in the states. I told her not to touch it close the case and call the police.

Why doesn't she just call the company that shipped to her accidentally?

They'll pay for it to be returned to them and will get it to the rightful owner that sent it to them for the work to be done.

No need to get the police involved in what's most likely a shipping error.

Googled the sender name and the only thing matching was a facebook page, being i dont have an account i couldn't access their contact info. So i told her to just call the police to get it off her hands.

Just have her call fedex. They will come get it and either return to the shipper or address correct it to the right place. I agree on not involving the police.

It's a MAJOR felony to ship a firearm to anyone but a FFL. Call the Law.

Seems like FEDEX would not want to accept it back from you knowing it was a firearm because you are not an FFL. And by you doing so, I bet there might be legal ramifications for you.

I hate it for the rightful owner, but law enforcement needs to get in this.

Yes if you're selling the firearm. You can send guns you already own in for repairs, recalls, and mods all day long and they can send them right back to you.
