An early morning investigation into the shipping of narcotics landed a Jasper woman behind bars.
Arrested and Charged was Amaleah Black-Smiley, 49, Jasper, IN
with Possession of Marijuana, Class B Misdemeanor.
Master Trooper Brian LaRoche, along with Dubois County Deputy Jesus Monarrez and K9 Karma, visited a local shipping company to investigate for possible shipments of narcotics.
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 this morning, officers delivered the package to 802 Hasenour Avenue in Jasper.
An officer was met at the door by 49 year old Amaleah Black-Smiley. When asked, Black-Smiley identified herself by a different name, but 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 transported to and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center.
