Is this your pot? Cops look for rightful owner after unexpected delivery
Police say a Hazlet man got an unexpected delivery — but they'll be happy to connect with the shipment's proper owner.
Officers responded to the residence, where a package that wasn't expected and was addressed to someone who didn't live at the home had arrived, Hazlet police said. Officers took posession of several boxes, trying to locate the correct address, the police department said.
"Looking for a packing list which would contain information on the addressee, officers opened the packages and found they contained approximately 50 pounds of marijuana," the police department wrote on its Facebook page. "If you were expecting these packages and would like to claim them, please come to police headquarters.
It continued: "In the meantime our detectives will be working with county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to locate the owner of this property."
