2 women detained for 11-pound marijuana delivery via USPS

A North Carolina mother and her daughter were detained on felony drug charges on March 4 after U.S. Postal Service inspectors interrupted the Jan. 16 delivery of a package through Priority Mail with the daughter's delivery address on it. After obtaining a search warrant, authorities opened the box and allegedly discovered 11 pounds of marijuana valued at around $22,000.

The following week, authorities delivered the box and reported that the 51-year-old mother and 28-year-old daughter received it. Authorities did not say whether they had identified the alleged mailer of the package. Both of the women were taken to Rowan County Detention Center and charged with drug trafficking. The daughter faces an additional charge of maintaining a residence to store and sell controlled substances. The women have since been released on bonds of $5,000.

Authorities say that this wasn't the first time the women had received packages containing marijuana. Additionally, the daughter was previously convicted of misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and felony charges for possession for schedule I and II substances. She has a prior revoked license conviction as well.

When individuals are charged with drug trafficking for marijuana, they could face harsh sentences that include fines and jail time. The severity of these consequences could intensify for defendants with prior convictions for similar charges. The defendants, however, could try to negotiate plea deals with the prosecutors if they are unable to discredit the evidence against them. Depending on the terms of the plea bargain, the defendants may only be fined or assigned probation for a certain period of time.
