Mustard-covered Marijuana Leads to Arrest

Police at Cleveland's Hopkins Airport seized nine pounds of marijuana Monday after a K9 alerted them to a package which had been shipped from San Jose, Calif.

Inside the package officers found three large vacuum-sealed bags covered with mustard and containing marijuana.

Officers set up a sting operation to arrest the person to whom the marijuana was addressed, taking one woman into custody after she signed for the package at the post office.

Police say the woman told authorities the package was addressed to a girlfriend of her son's, but upon further questioning, the woman requested an attorney and gave no additional details.

The woman arrested was released pending further investigation.
