On Thursday, Feb. 15, the Grayson County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) intercepted a shipment of marijuana from the Caneyville post office.

According to a news release from Sheriff Norman Chaffins, GCSO Detective Corey Knochel, of the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Taskforce, was dispatched to the Caneyville post office on a report of a suspicious post box.

Chaffins said Knochel was assisted by Chief Deputy Jarrod Mudd, Caneyville Police Chief Anthony Clark, and the US Postal Inspector in efforts to investigate the package.

Upon further investigation, GCSO found the box to contain a large amount of marijuana, Chaffins said.

According to Chaffins, the mailing address on the package was listed as being in Caneyville, but the address was actually located in Butler County.

Chaffins said the Postal Inspector obtained a federal search warrent, allowing law enforcement to open the package.

"The package contained approximately 12 lbs of high grade marijuana with a street value of approximately $48,000," he said.

GCSO has identified a possible suspect in this case; however, Sheriff Chaffins said, "If you are the addressee and would like to claim your marijuana, you may pick up the package at the Grayson County Sheriff's Office during normal business hours or call the office at (270) 259-3024 and ask for any of the deputies to assist you."
