NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk man was arrested after police said he picked up a package at the post office containing a large quantity of marijuana.

Horace Stultz, 49, of Norwalk, was charged with possession of more than 4 ounces of marijuana, possession with intent to sell, possession within distance of a school and selling within distance of a school. He was held on a $50,000 bond and will appear in court on Tuesday, April 29.

Police were contacted by postal employees on April 8, who said that a package addressed to Norwalk had been found to contain narcotics. The package had been inspected by a K-9 unit from the state police, who indicated that it contained drugs, police said. The package was originally from Surprise, Ariz., and had a New York return address.

Police obtained a search warrant and opened the package, which was found to contain a large quantity of marijuana encased in several layers of shrink wrap. An undercover officer attempted to deliver it to the address it was addressed to, but the person at the home was unaware of the package and did not know the person to whom it was addressed.

Police said that someone had called the post office several times to ask about the package. Police called the person back and told him to pick it up at the post office. On the afternoon of Thursday, April 17, Stultz arrived at the post office and picked up the package, according to police. Officers then took Stultz into custody.

VT has much better weed grown in the summer than AZ

Wasting my tax paying dollars.

Would not happen if Oncologists didnt have to send people into the streets for their medicine.
But we have to feed the prison industry with somebody.
Funny how cocaine pours into Fairfield County what seems like unnoticed.
Oh wait, i forgot about the few possession busts in South Norwalk as if South Norwalk is the port where ALL THOSE KILOS COME IN.
You better start checking the Yachts and the avenues where the cocaine comes in because you'll never convince me that someone in Roodner Court is bringing in all that cocaine the rich and the poor are consuming in this county.

Was the return address the Port Chester Homeless shelter?
