ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) -- Four people were arrested Friday in connection with a marijuana shipment from Arizona to an apartment building along the 800 block of Bath Avenue, Kentucky State Police say.

Kenneth Woods, Irvin Woods, Curtis Maynard and Ashly Leak, all of Ashland, were charged with drug trafficking.

The package contained 11 pounds of marijuana, troopers say.

Troopers say mail service has become a popular way of delivering drugs.

The U.S. Postal Service flagged the suspicious package, contacted Kentucky State Police, and then an inspector with the Postal Service delivered the package. Police then conducted a search of the apartment and found drugs.

The investigation is ongoing.
