WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police in Winston-Salem were executing a search warrant when they say a parcel was delivered with 4 pounds (1.81 kilograms) of high-grade marijuana.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports 50-year-old Narel Remondadeon Rutherford faces multiple charges after Monday morning’s search and delivery. Police say a search of a home also yielded eight marijuana plants and approximately a half-pound (0.23 kilograms) of marijuana from the kitchen and washing machine.
Police say in a news release that a delivery service brought the package from Portland, Oregon, while officers were inside the home.
The contents have a street value of more than $20,000.
Rutherford was charged with manufacturing marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of violating the Controlled Substance Act. It’s unclear if Rutherford has a lawyer.
