Police Bust Couple Receiving Drugs Through the Mail

Local News

Cambridge Police and the United States Postal Service team up to investigate a case of drugs being sent through the mail. 

Cambridge Police Chief William LePage said two individuals were arrested, Monday February 3, after a lengthy investigation. Officials said it all began with a tip from the public.

Captain Mark Baer and Lieutenant Karl Milam found drugs were being sent from Anaheim, California to residents in Cambridge. They provided names, addresses and other information to postal inspectors.

The inspectors intercepeted the package in Columbus, Ohio where a police K9 alerted the presence of drugs. The package contained large amounts of what is believed to be crystal meth and black tar heroin.

During the investigation a 57-year-old female suspect called the post office several times to ask about her package.

That package was taken to Cambridge, Monday, where a controlled delivery was made by law enforcement at the post office. After the woman picked up the package she was arrested outside the facility. A male suspect was also arrested after he tried to obtain the package.

A search warrant then was issued for 924 Grant Avenue where pills, drug paraphernalia, cash and computer evidence was seized.

The case will be presented to Guernsey County Prosecutor Dan Padden.
