    Investigators in York County are checking into a similar incident after a Rock Hill woman expecting delivery of a yoga mat received a box spilling over with illegal oxycodone pills Saturday.

    Officers with the York County Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit took possession of the drugs and have launched an investigation into the delivery, Marvin Brown, commander of the unit, said.

    Brown also said mail delivery of illegal drugs has become more prevalent with those in the drug trade using fake or wrong addresses and names, then waiting for packages to be delivered.
