BLUFFTON, SC (WSAV) – Beaufort County Violent Crime Task Force investigators charged Marcus Green, 30, with Trafficking in Marijuana and Possession of a Weapon in the Commission of a Violent Crime.
The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office says the United States Postal Service alerted the Beaufort County Violent Crimes Task Force that marijuana was being shipped through the mail to a Bluffton residence.
On Thursday, January 23, authorities arrested Green after they say he picked up the suspected packages at the Bluffton residence.
Investigators obtained a warrant to search the packages which revealed approximately 20 total pounds of marijuana. Investigators also recovered a semi-automatic pistol from Green’s vehicle.
A magistrate set Green’s bond at $17,125. He has since been released.
The incident remains under investigation.
