Suspicious package from Arizona leads to marijuana arrest in Boardman


A 32-year-old Austintown man will be in court today, accused of drug trafficking following the seizure of a 24-pound bag of marijuana during an investigation by Boardman police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

A DEA supervisor in Tucson, Ariz. contacted the Youngstown DEA office Friday to relay information that a UPS employee reported a suspicious package, weighing about 30 pounds that was bound for Erskine Avenue in Boardman.

Boardman police could not find the recipient’s name at the listed Erskine address in any database and intercepted the package Saturday at a UPS facility in Girard, according to reports.

A Boardman police dog sniffed the package and indicated the presence of narcotics, enabling police to receive a search warrant for the package found to contain about 24 pounds of marijuana, police said.

A Boardman detective posed as a UPS delivery person and went to the Erskine residence at about 11:40 a.m. Saturday with the package.

A woman answered the door and asked the detective to place the parcel at the side door, which he did. The woman removed the shipping label and carried the package to a vehicle in the front of the house. A short time later, a pick-up truck backed into the driveway and the driver took the box and placed it into the bed of the pick-up, records show.

Police stopped the truck driven by Daniel L. Carter, 32, of Austintown and took him to the Market Street station where he later was charged with attempted drug trafficking in vicinity of a juvenile.

its just some harmless (helpful) weed. legalize it. lets make a bigger deal about something that should be illegal and can actually kill you. keep smokin those cigarettes though, as long as society says it's ok.

Agree about weed, but it's not legal, and until it is legalize, people will still go to jail. Clear and simple.
