a weird (something)

"Weird" means "strange". "Strange" has a widermeaning than "weird". You can call things that are not normal "strange" or "weird". But you can also use "strange" for something that you don't know about, even if it's normal:

There was a strange man on my back porch, so I called the cops.

If you see a strange package, inform the building staff or the police immediately.
