Man arrested after allegedly receiving pot in mail

GREENWOOD, SC – A man was arrested Thursday afternoon after police say he received a package with about 22 pounds of marijuana at the Ship-It Center in Greenwood.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, agents with the Greenwood Drug Enforcement Unit were contacted by employees of the Ship-It Center after they received a package roughly the same size from the same address and addressed to the same person each week for several weeks. The report states that employees of the Ship-It Center opened the box and discovered a smaller box inside. Inside the smaller box was a bundle of plastic wrap that smelled of “Pine Sol” and weighed about 22 pounds.

According to the report, the package was shipped from an address in Burbank, Calif., with the name “Carson Phillips.” The package was addressed to “Jason Stern,” with an address at the Ship-It Center.

According to the report, agents from DEU arrived and executed a search warrant for the package. After opening the plastic wrap, they discovered a “green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana.” Agents resealed the package and waited for someone to come pick it up.

According to the report, a man, later identified as Larry Robert Curry, 30, of 3282 Cedar Dr. in Aiken, parked a gray 2009 Dodge Ram in front of the store. The report states that Curry then went inside, picked up the package and brought it back to his truck. Agents then approached Curry and informed him he was under arrest for trafficking marijuana. When asked about the package, Curry said he did not what police were talking about and did not wish to speak about the package.

Officials with DEU say that this is Curry’s second offense for trafficking marijuana. The first occurred in Arizona.

Officials with the Burbank Police Department declined to comment on the incident, citing an ongoing investigation into the matter.

Though I wouldn't want them opening my packages if they have a feeling that I'm doing something illegal then I applaud their proactive approach. With all the handcuffs they put on law enforcement today it's hard enough to catch a person. I appreciate someone putting themselves in harms way for the benefit of the community. Whether is should be legal has nothing to do with this subject.

You government educated drones who have no problem giving up your civil liberties should open your eyes. The ends do not justify the means, they had no right to open this package. They are the ones who should be behind bars.

Well KT I don't know all the laws or supreme court decisions (Or should I say opinions, which is what they are supposed to be), I was just basically asking a question, but I am sure you are super smart & could tell us the cases & laws about this. I am sure if you were mailing a package & they thought it smelled funny & opened it up only to find some sex toy lubricant in it, you would not have a problem. If they smelled something thats one thing, you call in the police with drug dogs, if they thought it strange because of the same package & shipment over & over, once again call law enforcement & report it, let them follow up, but why open it yourself? Thats all I am saying, this is not the first time someone has shipped pot or any other drug, I think this is the first time the shipping place opened it, usually law enforcement is tracking it. In the scheme of things I don't really care because this guy probably will not do over 2 months & thats if he does not turn in some other folks & get off altogether.
