NORTH FORSYTH — A north Forsyth man received a surprise recently when he opened a mistakenly addressed package to find it was filled with suspected marijuana.
The discovery came about one week after a pizza had been delivered to his home and addressed to the same unknown person.
The 50-year-old man brought the package to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office on Nov. 11. According to an incident report, he reported it and the contents — two vacuum-sealed packages of suspected marijuana and a rainbow-colored grinder — as suspicious.
He reportedly received the package via the U.S. Postal Service. It was addressed to his residence, which is off Hwy. 9 near the Dawson County line, but to a man he claimed not to know.
He also stated in the report that a Pizza Hut driver had delivered a pizza to his home Nov. 6 under the name of the same man, who is a suspect in the investigation.
It remains unclear whether the complainant ate the pizza.
The 27-year-old suspect “has an arrest history” in Forsyth County, with one of his charges being for “marijuana possession in 2007,” according to the sheriff’s office.
As of Friday, there were no active warrants for the suspect.
