Weed Bust


On Tuesday, North Slope Borough police officers seized a FIVE POUND package of marijuana being shipped by one Barrow resident to another via Anchorage.

In a news release, police say the marijuana had a street value of 150–THOUSAND DOLLARS.

The package was seized as part of an ongoing investigation into the transport of illegal drugs and alcohol to borough communities in the northernmost parts of the state.

The names of the people involved are being withheld until a grand jury convenes. No charges have been filed in the case.
