DC man orders television online, receives rifle in mail instead
from myfoxdc.com ................. WASHINGTON -D.C. Police have confirmed to FOX 5 that they are investigating why an Army-style assault rifle was mistakenly mailed to a D.C. man in an online order.
Seth Horvitz says he ordered a flat-screen television from a third party through Amazon.com. He received a package that was left in the hallway outside of his Northeast D.C. apartment Tuesday, but instead of a television, he found a black semi-automatic rifle inside the box.
Unsure about what to do with the rifle, Horvitz says he contacted police about it Tuesday evening. Police confiscated the rifle when they came to his apartment.
"[Police] were a little confused at first, they've never seen anything quite like it," says Horvitz. "They just took my information and then said we'll handle this weapon because it's illegal to keep here. It's illegal to transport in a car, so it can't be returned."
The shipping label on the box had Horvitz's name and address, but the invoice inside the box indicated it should have been shipped to a gun shop in Pennsylvania. We have reached out to Amazon and the third-party seller, and will bring you an update as soon as it becomes available.
D.C. Police also says it is illegal to a transport weapon across the D.C. line.
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."

It's illegal to keep there, illegal to transport in a car and illegal to ship over state lines..... I don't get. It can't be returned although it was a mistake.
Does the guy get a refund or his tv?

Just tell the guy who shipped it to come and get it if he wants it, then look the other way when he slips it into his pickup truck. Definitely give the other guy the TV he ordered as well. Everyone is happy and don't even tell anyone about it.
