Police seize $5M in drugs sent through mail last year

MILLVILLE -- The United States Post Office thanked Millville Police Department for helping to keep $5 million worth of drugs off the streets over the past year that would have come through the mail.

The post office used Millville officers John Butschy and Mike Calchi, along with their K-9 partners Rio and Chase, to inspect packages sent through offices in the Delaware Valley area. Using the K-9s, the post office seized 446 pounds of marijuana, 28 kilograms of cocaine, 21 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, 4.25 ounces of heroin and $44,430 in money related to narcotics.

"As you can see, these are significant amounts of illegal narcotics which, thanks to your officers, we were able to seize and prevent from being distributed," states a letter to Millville Police Department from John Crockett, group supervisor of the United States Postal Inspection Service's narcotics investigations for the Philadelphia and South Jersey division.

Crockett's group is responsible for the investigation of narcotics shipped in the mail.

The marijuana seized has a street value of $2.2 million and the cocaine seized has a street value of $2.8 million, according to authorities.

"We are very proud that we are able to collaborate and work with other agencies and we will continue to do that with United Stated Postal Service," said Chief Jody Farabella of Millville Police Department. "These K-9 officers go above and beyond."
