Twenty-one pounds of marijuana valued at nearly $27,000 were seized Monday afternoon after an Indiana man picked up a suspicious package at a Celina business.
Acting on a tip, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification (BCI & I) alerted the Mercer County Sheriff's Office of the suspected pickup at a package delivery business in the Celina Industrial Park. Local efforts were mobilized in 90 minutes with BCI & I agents making a quick trip from the Bowling Green office. [More]
