A FedEx shipment that was intercepted by Martin County lawmen netted them 7.5 pounds of marijuana and a suspected drug dealer behind bars.
On Wednesday FedEx delivered the package to 116 West Grace Street in Williamston. The Martin County Narcotics Unit then arrested Antonio Laughinghouse after they say he retrieved the package and went inside the home.
The 35-year-old Laughinghouse was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sale or deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling or vehicle to keep or store controlled substances, and
manufacture, sale, deliver or possess controlled substances within 1000 feet of a school.
He has a July 13th court date and is jailed on a $100,000 bond. Deputies say the marijuana is worth $8,000 on the street.
