SMITHFIELD – Two pounds of marijuana showed up at the front door of a Smithfield home.

On June 29, Smithfield Police responded to an address on Sussex Drive for a report of a suspicious package. The homeowner was not expecting a delivery when a small box showed up.

The resident reported the package had a “funny smell” so he called police. When the package was opened it contained two vacuum sealed bags of marijuana, weighing a total of two pounds.

Police said the package had been mailed from Medford, Oregon, through the US Postal Service, to a numerical house number on Sussex Drive in Smithfield that did not exist. The postal carrier reportedly left the package at the closest house number, and that resident called police.

Officers said the recipient’s name on the package was checked through a police database but no one by that name lives in the area. Nearby residents questioned by police did not recognize the name of the person. The name was not released.

Police seized the marijuana until it could be destroyed.
