Dover Man Arrested After Receiving Large Shipment Of Marijuana

DOVER, Del. - An investigation conducted by the Delaware State Police, Dover Police Department, (California) Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration resulted in the seizure of a large amount of marijuana yesterday.

At 7:25 p.m., a search warrant was executed at a residence in the 100 block of Midessa Crossing. Detectives made forcible entry into the residence after the occupants refused to answer the door. Recovered from the residence were over four pounds of marijuana from a box that had just been delivered from California. Also recovered were 12 grams of marijuana stored in a freezer, a digital scale, and a marijuana pipe.

Detectives determined that the resident of the home, Larry Feldman, 63, had shipped the marijuana from California to himself. He was taken into custody and transported to Troop 3, where he was charged with attempted possession of a controlled substance in a tier 2 quantity, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $5,500 unsecured bail.
