La Grange, NC - Another stash of pot has been delivered to a discount store, where over the weekend the manager and another employee were arrested for trafficking marijuana.

On Monday, the new manager of the Family Dollar store in La Grange received what they thought were two suspicious packages. The store opened the packages and found marijuana inside. They immediately called the Lenoir County Sheriff's Department.

Captain Jim Oldenburg tells WITN News that approximately 28 pounds of pot were found this time.

Oldenburg says they are still investigating the second delivery and so far no arrests have been made.

On Saturday, deputies acted on a tip and found two packages totaling 23 pounds of pot at the store.

They arrested store manager Melissa Collie and employee Belinda Pearson for trafficking in marijuana.
