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.
