JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two men were arrested at a Westside home Monday after police say the men received a package with twenty pounds of marijuana inside.
Monday afternoon detectives with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office were working with the United States Postal Service to conduct "parcel interdiction," according to an arrest report.
Because of a "suspicious package," detectives went to a home in the 3700 block of Colebrooke Dr. on Jacksonville's Westside. That package turned out to be a twenty pound box of marijuana, according to police.
When police knocked on the door they were met by Victor Santos and "the distinct odor of burnt marijuana."
Police asked Santos if there were any drugs in the house. He said he had a small amount of marijuana.
Santos, who told police he was from the U.S. Virgin Islands, was again asked if he had any other drugs in the house. He said no and gave investigtors permission to search the home.
Police found Santos' brother, David Reid, 40, in a bedroom while searcing. When they asked Reid where he was from, he said: Jamaica.
When police asked Santos why his brother was from Jamaica and he was from the Virgin Islands, Santos ran out of the house and escaped.
Detectives, who were still searching the home, then found a third person, Claude Campbell, 29, hiding in a closet.
While searching the kitchen, police found approximately ten pounds of marijuana in a duffle bag in a cabinet, according to the report.
Reid and Campbell said they didn't know anything about the duffle bag of weed or the box of weed delivered to the home.
