Police find drugs in 'special' delivery

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - If you are expecting a FedEx package containing 2 pounds of pot, you may pick it up at the Jonesboro Police Department.

On Saturday, Officer Susan Gray was dispatched to FedEx, 2712 Phillips, regarding a suspicious package.

The manager gave Gray a large box addressed to a named woman living in the 1300-block of East Rose Street in Blytheville. An agent with the Mississippi County Drug Task Force (MCDTF) told investigators “he thought the residence was vacant.”

Inside the box, according to the initial incident report, was 2.3 pounds of marijuana valued at $5,000.

Gray took the package and its contents to the police department where it was placed into an evidence locker.

All information has been forwarded to the MCTDF.Offic
