Man charged after FedEx shipment of marijuana intercepted‎

Johnson City police arrested a Wilson Avenue man Thursday after intercepting  a FedEx package shipped to his address containing more than seven pounds of  marijuana, according to a police report.

James Marshall Wolfe, 317 Wilson Ave., was charged with possession of  marijuana for resale, maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold and conspiracy  to sell marijuana.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office authorities in Orlando, Fla., alerted area law  enforcement about a suspicious package that was being sent through FedEx from  Eureka, Calif., to Wolfe’s residence, according to the police report.

The OCSO narcotics agent obtained the FedEx tracking number for the package,  and area investigators were able to track it to the FedEx facility in  Blountville.

After a canine unit performed a search of several packages, officers  identified the package addressed to Wolfe and had it secured until they obtained  a search warrant.

Inside the package, police found 7.7 pounds of hydroponically grown marijuana  with an estimated street value of $50,000, according to the report.

Officers resealed the package and attempted to deliver the package to Wolfe’s  residence.

With an investigator posing as a FedEx delivery driver, Wolfe reportedly met  the officer on his front porch and signed for the package. After signing, Wolfe  was immediately taken into custody.

After searching Wolfe’s residence, police reportedly found several loaded  firearms, drug paraphernalia and more marijuana inside the residence.

Wolfe was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $60,000 bond  pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
