A teddy bear is a thoughtful gift for Valentine's Day -- unless it gets you arrested on drug charges.

That's what authorities say happened to Lawrence Ligocki of Chelsea, Mass., who allegedly received a package containing not only several heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, but also a teddy bear stuffed with three bags of crystal meth valued at around $10,000, according to

Authorities first suspected the possible drug violation on Feb. 5 when postal inspectors notified police of a suspicious package addressed to Ligocki, and the presence of drugs was confirmed by a drug-sniffing dog, reported.

The meth-stuffed teddy bear was delivered to Ligocki, 62, by a postal inspector posing as a mail carrier. By the inspector's account, Ligocki initially said he was expecting the package, but after the official handed him a warrant to search the house, he changed his story, The Boston Globe reported.

During the search of the house, investigators say they found an additional jar of meth on the premises, WBZ-TV.

Ligocki was charged with drug possession and trafficking and was freed on $150 bail after pleading not guilty, according to
