Havre Man Pleads Not Guilty After Receiving Marijuana in the Mail

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Last month, a Havre man pleaded not guilty to receiving marijuana products in the mail. Bryan Heath is charged with criminal possession with intent to distribute and obstructing a peace officer.

Court documents say that the Havre Police Department received a call from the UPS Store in Havre on April 30th, saying they had received a suspicious package that smelled like marijuana. UPS employees opened the box, as is their policy regarding packages suspected to contain drugs. Inside, they found three disposable marijuana cartridges for an electronic smoking device and a plastic bag containing 20 small paper envelopes. The envelopes were later determined to be nearly 29 grams of hashish.

The agents had a UPS employee contact Heath, who came to pick up the package. They stopped Heath on his way out. Heath then pulled out his cell phone and started using it. Officers feared Heath was deleting evidence and ordered him to stop. Heath refused and pushed an agent away. He was then arrested.
