TALLADEGA, Ala. - A package addressed from "Grandpa Henderson" in San Diego, Calif., to "Grandma Henderson" in Talladega, Ala., wasn''t ordinary mail, and it wasn''t picked up by any grandmother.
The package aroused suspicions among Talladega postal inspectors, who contacted the Talladega County drug task force. Task force commander Jason Murray says a trained drug-detection dog singled out the package, and law enforcement officers waited for someone to pick it up.
Three men did that Saturday. They were stopped after they left the post office, and officers found more than 6 pounds of marijuana in the package.
Murray says the three have been charged with trafficking in marijuana.
