Reeking package leads to dope bust
River Falls police arrested a 57-year-old local man Tuesday afternoon, May 3, on drug charges after getting a warrant to search his home at 217 E. Elm St. The case began when police were notified by the U.S. Postal service that a package with that local address smelled of marijuana.
According to Police Chief Roger Leque, a federal search warrant was used to open and examine the package, which allegedly was found to contain a large amount of cash.
