Somebody's Sending Kilograms of Cocaine To A Lakewood Gas Station

Posted By on Wed, Apr 22, 2015 at 6:09 PM


Somebody in Long Beach, California sent a Lakewood gas station multi-kilogram packages of cocaine, and the owner has no idea why.

According to an affidavit filed by a Cleveland-based United States Postal Inspector, the owner of the Sunoco station received the first package last Wednesday, opened it, and discovered "two cellophane wrapped bundles of a white powdery substance suspected to be cocaine." Just before 11 a.m., according to police records, the owner called Lakewood police, who took it back to the department for some testing: two kilograms — 4.4 pounds — of the good stuff.

The LPD called US postal inspectors, who have federal authority to investigate stuff in the mail.

The next package came in two days later, but it didn't make it to the station: "On Friday, April 17, 2015, Postal Inspectors were contacted by the Lakewood Post Office advising they had received another Priority Mail parcel for the Sunoco gas station which had also been mailed from Long Beach, CA," the affidavit stated.

The inspector looked up the return address: it was a fake name listed at at commercial mail receiving agency. The inspector's "narcotic detection canine" signaled there are drugs in there. The box weighs three and a half kilograms. The affidavit is seeking legal authority to open the package.
