The woman was arrested and 28 pounds of marijuana was seized, according to a press release from the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office.

A package was delivered on Nov. 26 via U.S. mail to a Bemidji business while task force agents watched the store and subsequently arrested the Bemidji woman who picked up the package, the press release said.
