LCSO: Marijuana by mail results in four arrests

Lee Herald Favicon 16Four people are in jail after a pair of investigations into packages of marijuana send through the mail, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

In the first, Glenford Lewis, 60, was charged with smuggling and with possession with the intent to sell marijuana, after law enforcement discovered a package bound for a Cape Coral address from Las Vegas with 4.5 pounds of marijuana inside.

In the second, a similar circumstance – this time coming from California, resulted in three arrests, according to a news release from LCSO. In the release, deputies say they found five pounds of marijuana inside that package, and the discovery of said package resulted in the arrests of Donavan Mott, 25, and Alysia Kirk, 26, after a traffic stop following seeing the vehicle at the package’s delivery address. The release states the vehicle Mott and Kirk were in had an undisclosed amount of marijuana in vacuum-sealed packages and $9,000 in cash.

After the traffic stop, a search at the home of the two also resulted in the arrest of Hubert Burrows, 20. Deputies say the search resulted in 12 pounds of marijuana, a money counting machine, scales, and a vacuum sealer, as well as a locked Glock pistol and a filled 50-round drum magazine.

All three are facing multiple charges related to possession with the intent to sell, drug paraphernalia, and drug smuggling related charges.
