Employees at a popular South Street store were scratching their heads over a special delivery Saturday morning. Police were called to the Fusion jeans boutique, on South Street near 4th, after employees received not one but two packages of marijuana, with a total of 20 pounds of weed. “Officers received a call that the manager of the store had received a package from FedEx and when he opened it there was a five-gallon bucket inside,” said Capt. Chris Werner of Narcotics Field Unit 2.
“We don’t usually get Saturday deliveries, so right away we thought something was up,” said another manager who was working at the time of the delivery but asked that she not be identified. She said when employees opened the package, they found the bucket inside. Werner said that when the manager opened the bucket, it was filled to the brim with pot. The second package arrived about an hour later — this time from a different delivery service — but with similar contents.
