UPS worker accused of drug theft

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA — A woman who managed a Georgia UPS store has been arrested and accused of stealing a package of marijuana and selling the contents for profit.

Acting United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a Friday statement that 33-year-old Anna Wright of Atlanta was charged with making false statements to a federal agent and distributing marijuana.

Yates said Wright had been asked to keep an eye out for the package because postal inspectors suspected it contained contraband.

Prosecutors said instead of calling officials when the package arrived, Wright stole the parcel, which contained several pounds of marijuana, and sold most of the drugs.

Each of the charges carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Guys, I'm no Obama fan by a long stretch, but seriously, you need to stop blaming him for all the crime. It just makes you look so childish. (Remember, just like when those on the left blame everything on Bush? It's annoying, right?) It's not like crimes like these haven't been committed for years and years.

Drug laws are discriminatory

Drug laws are discriminatory and racist. The middle and upper class people get their Valiums and the lower class has to buy pot. Repeal discriminatory and racist drug laws and set free non-violent drug offenders from prison. Saves money and space to incarcerate violent felons, while generating tax revenues for us all. As for this woman: stupidity knows no economic or racial bounds.

Sorry, we know thats not true

Sorry, we know thats not true cajunna, so idiotic stuff like that doesn't bother most people. When someone tries to insult people, usually it only hurts and people are offended when it is true.
