(JASPER) - A Friday morning investigation into the shipping of narcotics landed a Jasper woman behind bars.
On Friday, Master Trooper Brian LaRoche, along with Dubois County Deputy Jesus Monarrez and K9 Karma, visited a local shipping company to investigate for possible shipments of narcotics.
After a positive K9 alert was given on a suspicious package, officers obtained a search warrant and found the box to contain nearly one pound of marijuana, wrapped with coffee beans.
Just before 10 a.m. Friday, officers delivered the package to 802 Hasenour Avenue in Jasper. An officer was met at the door by 49-year-old Amaleah Black-Smiley. When asked, Black-Smiley identified herself by a different name, but the same name listed as the intended recipient of the package. After taking delivery of the box, Black-Smiley was placed in custody on a Class B misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
Black-Smiley was transported to and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center.
