Postal Service Delivery Lands Pitt County Man In Jail

A suspicious package mailed from Texas has landed a Pitt County man in trouble with the law.

Deputies say they were contacted by the U.S. Postal Service about the package going to a home on Old River Road. When the package was in Wilmington a postal drug dog alerted inspectors.

They allowed the package to be delivered yesterday, with Issac Jones accepting it. Deputies then executed a search warrant for the home and found the package with three pounds of mid-grade marijuana inside.

The 39-year-old Jones was charged with possession, maintaining a dwelling for drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputies say the pot is worth $3,000. Also found in the house was $1,100 in cash and another five ounces in the house.

Jones was released on a $25,000 secured bond.

    i dont care whether anyone thinks marijuana is great or terrible, its illegal right now, therefore, what this man did is stupid. when you know the law but think you are above it and commit crimes anyways, you are dumb. i know for a fact that i can text while driving and have no problems. not everyone can do it safely or easily. but its illegal, so i will not do it. if i get in trouble for texting and driving (which i wont for reasons stated above), i will not accuse the police of wasting their resources since i know the law. there are people who drive dangerously while texting, and there is good reason for the law, even if that reason does not apply to me. the reason doesnt apply, the law does. i hope i broke it down enough for the pot heads.

    Why is it that we all know that have been made ( weed kills),mother nature is better for you ? But it will kill you only because of the law ? Maybe everybody should stop smoking cigs by half for one day,i bet it would make them look for money eleswhere,maybe look back at the good ole days when it was not ilegal? Just saying'

    as a pot head for 38 yrs, if it killed my brain cells i can only wonder what i could have achieved had i not smoked. dang, i have a house in the mountains, a house at the beach, owned my own company, retired at 45, and have lived a normal life. imagine the tax revenue the gov't would rake in if legalized, shoot we could probably pay down the national debt in 5 yrs. just my opinion tho...

      Sounds like a good idea but we all know they use the money for something else.

      what do you define as normal? being a pot head is not normal. it may not kill your brain cells, but you will be dependent upon it if you smoke it enough. would you give it up if you had to? could you?

        I wonder if a Fed ex driver could ship something to himself and take it out of the system before it reaches home.

          HAHAHAHA. Dude, the cops already know CALI bud comes into the Northeast. I got a good buddy that works for FEDEX and they really look at the 20-30 lb boxes. Don't worry, I won't tell how the big boy boxes come in.

          Yep, fedex will open up your package if it's coming from CA and they think it's got weed in it. They tell you the box came to them that way, be careful they know what's goin on. How do I know? I had car parts shipped to me from CA and everytime the driver or someone in route checked it, hoping to hit the jackpot.LOL

      He could have figured that out if he would have just looked on the internet. Do your homework or get locked up.
