Police Investigating 12 Pound Pot Delivery

Sheriff's department is looking into a discovery of 12 pounds of marijuana that was mailed to a Sussex home.

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an incident where someone apparently mailed 12 pounds of marijuana to a Sussex residence.

According to a search warrant filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court last week, on Nov. 16, the postal inspector at the Sussex Post Office branch contacted the sheriff’s department after the location got a suspicious 12 pound package set to be delivered to a home in the N6500 block of Bowling Green Street. The package had been sent from Live Oak, Calif., and was the second of its type to be sent to the same address in a week.

The suspicious package was then taken to the residence to be delivered, however, after 20 minutes no one got it, so the Waukesha County Metro Drug Unit took possession of it again.

The incident remains under investigation.

12 pounds of pot? Thank goodness thousands of dollars and tens of investigative hours were spent to make us safe from this threat to our safety. I bet it was sent by terrorists.

Comparing cannabis and heroin is a bit of a stretch. it is similar to blaming guns for killing people when it is obvious that people kill people. Heroin kills people. Cannabis does not. I can see disliking manmade chemical drugs. However, the fact remains that cannabis has proven medical benefits--unlike alcohol. And nobody has ever died from cannabis itself--unlike alcohol. Educate yourselves. And consider that a small quantity of thc is better for you than a beer. it is frankly disturbing that our society has such an infantile view on mind-expansion and natural hallucinogens/psychoactives. It is not for everyone. But i am of the belief that cannabis, ibogaine, psilocybin, ayahuasca, etc should be legalized for medical use. God created them. And He does not make mistakes. Also, the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp and our founding fathers were known to indulge in cannabis. In fact, cannabis was legal in the U.S until the 1950's. I encourage you to research Terrance Mckenna. You do not have to agree with me--just keep an open mind.

I will say that i am glad the culprits were caught in this case, though. I am against advocates of irresponsible use. People should be mature about cannabis and use it for legitimate medical issues. Not for the sake of getting high.

Whitey Flora? Racial profiling isn't about race, it's about criminals. Criminal profiling is a behavioral and investigative tool that is intended to help investigators to accurately predict and profile the characteristics of unknown criminal subjects or offenders. Blackies sell more than caucasions, so your point is invalid. Why is it every day when I read the paper and get to the crime section, it always reads the suspects are black males or females? Get out from your "happy rock" and YOU take a look at the big picture!

I agree with you 100%, mdic , DMT and THC are both natural even though they have a chemical compound name, they two just need to be used recreationally in a controlled, safe eneviorment... and its not for everyone ! But, will expand, Thank you. I'm going to glady disconect now and enjoy this sunnyday
