Two arrests after 16 pounds of pot mailed to Lebanon
Cops tracked package from California
LEBANON, NH - James Sampson, 32, of Canaan and Eduardo Moran, 30, of Lebanon have been arrested at the conclusion of a lengthy investigation into 16 pounds of marijuana that was sent through the mail to a residence in Lebanon clear from California, Lebanon Police announced Monday.
Lebanon detectives were initially alerted by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department in California that a suspicious package was on its way and, working with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, they arranged for a controlled delivery which in turn led to a search of Moran’s residence.
"The Lebanon Police Detective Division continued to investigate and gathered enough information for several more search warrants to be granted," police said in a press release, adding, "Arrest warrants were ultimately issued for both Sampson and Moran."
Sampson was arrested on Tuesday, September 26th, and Moran was arrested the next day. Both men were charged with a felony count each of conspiracy to distribute a controlled drug and then released on bail following their arraignments at the Grafton County Superior Court.
