Maybe this explains why people aren’t using the postal service like they used to:

Middletown police say the search is over for the main suspect who was attempting to receive more than 56 pounds of marijuana through the mail.

Theodore Freeman, Jr., 43, walked into police headquarters Monday and turned himself in on drug charges, police said.

Last month, two boxes of pot, weighing about 29 pounds, were delivered to the Middletown home where Johnnie Mae Mitchell, 58, took the packages inside. Police said she accepted them for her nephew, Freeman…. Minutes later, police stormed the home and arrested Mitchell and her older brother Theodore Roosevelt Freeman, Sr., 65. Police said Mitchell and Freeman claimed the packages belonged to Freeman’s son.

Freeman Sr. told police his son lives on Long Hill Road and works at the post office. When detectives showed up to arrest Freeman Jr. at work, he was nowhere to be found. He had left work with no explanation, post office employees said.
