Marijuana mail delivery results in trio of arrests

Marcelo Hernandez, 38, of Ottawa, and Gracielda Couarruvies, 37, and Jose Hector Sanchez, 32, both of the same address in Leipsic, Ohio, were arrested about 3 p.m. in their homes after the packages were delivered. They were being held last night in the Putnam County Jail on one count each of trafficking over bulk amount pending arraignments Monday in Putnam County Court.

Authorities seized one package at each residence. Both packages contained two marijuana bricks, weighing about six pounds each, with a total street value of about $30,000, the sheriff said.

The packages were sent by overnight express mail from Texas, Sheriff Beutler said. U.S. postal inspectors in Texas tipped off Ohio authorities about the packages.
