Lafayette police got the call around noon on Thursday.

A shipping company was unable to deliver the package because of an issue with the address. Under policy, the company opened the package to see if they could find an address or name. That's when they discovered the marijuana.

Lt. Scott Galloway said the marijuana had a street value of around $10,000.

"The drugs are off the street, which is a good thing. The marijuana will eventually be destroyed and be in our property room. If there's any other leads or anything that comes along with that, then I would send that to the drug task force," said Galloway.

If anybody has any information regarding the package, call Lafayette police or the anonymous WeTip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
