FAIRFIELD, Ohio -- A man was arrested Thursday after undercover law enforcement officials delivered a package containing three pounds of marijuana to a home in Fairfield.
The arrest was made at a home in the 5300 block of Boehm Drive after Robert Lee, 33, accepted the package, according to officials from the Butler County Sheriff's Office. Deputies say the package was mailed to Lee from an address in California.
The undercover effort was a "controlled delivery" between United States Postal Inspection Service and the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics unit. Once the delivery was made by undercover agents, a search warrant was executed at the home and the package was recovered by investigators.
Lee, a resident of Capon Bridge, W.V., said he was only spending Wednesday and Thursday in Fairfield.
The owner of the home where the package was delivered told deputies he has a son who lives in California but doesn't know anything about the package. The relationship between the homeowner, whose name was not released, and Lee has not been determined.
It's unclear if law enforcement officials plan to make additional arrests as a part of this investigation.
Lee is charged with possession of drugs, a third-degree felony.
