An intercepted package leads to a drug related arrest.

Officers from the I 135 / I 70 Drug Task Force executed a search warrant after being alerted by the postal service about a possible drug delivery.

Police say the postal inspector found about 2 pounds of marijuana in a box that was mailed from northern California to a Salina address.

The drug task force entered a house at 836 Navaho on Wednesday at about 1:30pm, after the package was received by 29-year-old Anthony Michael Adams.

Officers found drug paraphernalia along with 1,036 grams of high-grade pot, $3,420 in suspected drug proceeds plus four packets of marijuana brownie mix.

Adams was arrested on multiple charges that include possession with intent to sell within a thousand feet of a school.

Task Force Commander Lt. Jim Norton tells KSAL News that two children, ages 5 and 6 were with Adams when he drove up to his home.

Police confrim the boy and girl have been turned over to their mother.

Further arrests are possible as investigators trace the California source of the marijuana package.
