Video: Postal Service Battles Illegal Drug Shipments

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA – Roseville Police arrested two suspects in a drug ring that shipped illegal drugs through a a local Post Office facility.

They say Tim Reimer and Brian Getz based their operation in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area where 141 pounds of processed and wrapped pot was found along with $225,000 in cash.

The pot was supposedly shipped to addresses in Pennsylvania and New Jersey where one of the suspects would fly to pick up the drugs. The practice is not unusual ever since medical marijuana was made legal in California. Some dealers don’t chance driving illegal pot across the country.

“They’re going through several states all with varying laws and you’re just one broken tail light and maybe a lead foot from being stopped by law enforcement so it’s less risky to ship it,” Roseville Police spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said.
