Woman Arrested After Authorities Find Marijuana Wrapped in Coffee Beans

A morning investigation into shipping of narcotics landed one Jasper woman in jail.

Friday morning, authorities visited a local shipping company to investigate for possible shipments of narcotics.

Authorities tell Eyewitness News that after a positive K9 alert was given on a suspicious package, officers obtained a search warrant and found the box to contain nearly one pound of marijuana wrapped with coffee beans.

Just before 10:00 Friday morning, authorities delivered the package to 802 Hasenour Avenue in Jasper.

Authorities say they were met at the door by Amaleah Black-Smiley, 49, who identified herself by a different name. However, it was allegedly the same name listed as the intended recipient of the package.

After taking delivery of the box, Black-Smiley was placed in custody.

Black-Smiley was charged with Possession of Marijuana and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center.

Below is the photo of the marijuana covered in coffee beans.
