GARDNER, Kan. — A mysterious substance in a terrorism textbook gives one local college student the scare of her life. Sophia Stockton ordered a used terrorism textbook for a class she is taking a Mid America Nazarene University.

She bought the book for $30 on Amazon.com. When the book arrived in the mail, she got more than she bargained for.

“It was Sunday night and I just received it in the mail,” Stockton said. “I opened it and I was just kind of flipping through the pages and so my 18-year-old brother was sitting at the table too. “

That’s when the student noticed a mysterious substance.

“Just a little tiny package falls out with white powder in it,” Stockton said. “And I’m like white powder just fell out of my terrorism book. And so my brother was like Oh, that’s scary.”

The next day Stockton carefully took the bag to the Gardner Police Department fearing what the contents might be.

“In class we talked about people sending bombs in the mail and I though of you know they send anthrax in the mail, too,” she said.

Gardner Police tested the white powdery substance on the spot.

“They went back and they tested it and he came back like 10 minutes later and said, you didn’t happen to purchase cocaine with your text book did you?” she said. “I was like no.”

A friend of Stockton’s who is an attorney told her the bag was probably two to three grams of Cocaine and worth $300 to $400.

Gardner Police tells FOX 4 hey destroyed the drugs.
