UPS busts man trying to mail marijuana from Colorado to Texas
A Texas man attempted to mail himself nine pounds of marijuana from Colorado, however UPS employees became suspicious of the package and alerted police.
Johnny Wolfe, 23, allegedly purchased the cannabis and cannabis products from two dispensaries in Pueblo, including edibles, cough syrups, skin patches and wax.
Police in Pueblo began investigating Wolfe last month after United Parcel Service employees reported receiving a package that was suspicious. The package was sent by Wolfe out of Pueblo to himself at an address in San Angelo, which is about 230 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
Once the package was opened, a warrant was issued for Wolfe. Police estimated the marijuana to be worth $58,000 and the cannabis products to be worth $5,000.
The San Angelo Police Department was then contacted, who arrested Wolfe at his home. He is being held at the Tom Green County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash only bond.
