Drug investigators intercepted 12 pounds of marijuana in a parcel package addressed to a Detroit Lakes, Minn., residence.

Authorities delivered the package there and arrested three people.

The suspects told authorities the drugs were supposed to be delivered to two Fargo residences. The suspects then agreed to cooperate with authorities.

After securing two search warrants from a judge, investigators monitored delivery of the marijuana last Nov. 18 at two Fargo addresses: 3035 23rd St. S. and 1770 42nd St. S.W.

The investigation led to charges against Garner and Benjamin M. Davis, 23, 2124 10th St. S., Fargo.

Prosecutors have filed felony charges against Davis for possessing marijuana with the intent to sell it and possessing drug paraphernalia. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
