Police Arrest Tiverton Man Using USPS To Ship Drugs
Tiverton Police, working with US Postal Inspectors and Massachusetts State Police, arrested a local man after discovering he was being shipped in marijuana and steroids from California via the federal mail service.
A local man was charged with two counts of felony drug possession after local police - who were working with federal inspectors - found he was receiving marijuana and steroids through the mail.
Craig P. St. Amour 37, of 464 Hooper St., Tiverton, was arrested on Monday, June 25 at 1:35 p.m. after Tiverton Police, Massachusetts State Police and Unites States Postal Inspectors made a controlled delivery of a package that they suspected to contain narcotics.
According to Lt. Patrick Jones authorities were tipped off that the package - which was mailed via the United States Postal Service from California to St. Amour's address - could contain drugs after a drug-sniffing dog identified it.
"After the delivery was made and local officers along with the other respective authorities confronted St. Amour at his residence, a search warrant was issued and a search completed by detectives and investigators," said Jones. "Officers seized a quantity of marijuana - 27 grams - and 42 bottles of steroids."
Tiverton Police arrested St. Amour based on the what was seized from his home and the delivered package and charged him with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. He was arraigned in Second Division District Court and released on $10,000 bail with surety.
