Sometimes it's what's inside that counts - as a Green Bay woman gets a Christmas gift that she'll likely never forget.

The Brown County sheriff's department says someone bought her a refurbished vacuum cleaner from a local department store, and when the woman got home and opened the box, she found three shrink-wrapped packages that she presumed were spare parts. More than two pounds of cocaine and two pounds of crystal meth were actually inside. The drugs had a street value of $280,000.
