CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A package containing about 12 pounds of suspected marijuana was intercepted by local police this week after they were tipped off that the box was being mailed from New Mexico to Jefferson County, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.
Jefferson County sheriff's deputies were initially told about the package Wednesday when an officer from the Metro Narcotics Agency in Las Cruces, N.M., contacted local police, court records said.
The package was found at a Federal Express office near Las Cruces and was addressed to a man in Bakerton, court records said.
