People are getting more careless every day. A 24-year-old man in Montana is accused of using UPS to ship marijuana. Although his plans were foiled by using CLEAR packaging tape. He has been charged with a pair of felonies.
Charging documents filed in Justice Court on Friday say Nicholas T. Navarro was arrested after an employee at a UPS store in Missoula spotted the marijuana through a strip of clear packing tape and called police.
Detectives who searched Navarro’s home say they found an additional three pounds of marijuana and the man acknowledged he was selling the pot for profit.
Navarro is charged with criminal possession of dangerous drugs and possession with the intent to distribute.
Court records say a woman who accompanied Navarro to the UPS store actually paid to have the package shipped overnight to an Illinois address. The woman, who has not been charged, told detectives she was mailing the package at Navarro’s behest.
Now it’s not the first time this has happened, but you would think that people would learn from others mistakes.
