Whitehall police are investigating after a package delivered Dec. 19 to an apartment complex on Irongate Lane turned out to be filled with drugs.
The package was covered in Christmas wrapping paper and contained marijuana with a street value of $31,000, according to Deputy Chief Dan Kelso.
Kelso described the courier service that delivered the package as a "legitimate" business, but police have not publicly identified the company, the sender or intended recipient.
Kelso said the courier left the package at the apartment complex's rental office. Employees there found it suspicious and reported it to police, he said.
As of Dec. 21, no charges had been filed in connection with the case.
Police obtained a search warrant to recover the package, which contained 8 pounds of marijuana, reports said.
"These drugs will not be on the street or in a child's possession because of alert citizens," Kelso said.
In other recent Whitehall police reports:
* Police arrested a 21-year-old woman on a warrant for receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony, at 11:45 p.m. Dec. 17 after responding to a potential burglary report in the 1000 block of Fountain Lane.
A driver for a ride-sharing service called police after dropping off an intoxicated woman, then witnessing her break a window to gain entry to an apartment.
Police knocked on the door of the apartment and were greeted by the intoxicated woman and two other occupants, reports said.
Police could not immediately determine who lawfully resided at the apartment as the occupants did not have proper identification, according to reports.
Officers eventually identified one of the occupants as a 21-year-old woman who told police she had a warrant "for selling her ex-boyfriend's property."
The woman -- who was not the woman who allegedly broke the window -- was arrested.
She had an active warrant for receiving stolen property and was transported to the Whitehall police station.
The woman told police she had dated a man for "several weeks" who did not have identification and asked her to pawn a laptop computer, watch and video-game console.
She told police she gave $150 to the man after pawning the property.
The woman was arraigned Dec. 19, released on a recognizance bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 27, according to municipal court records.
