Three Ocean County men are in custody after attempting to mail drugs using the USPS service.

The Stafford Township Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Unit {DEU} was contacted by the United States Postal Service Inspectors about three packages that were seized by the U.S. Customs Border Patrol and Protection Division.

The packages were determined to contain a quantity of Steroids and LSD. The three packages were scheduled be delivered to three separate residences in Stafford Township. With that information, the Stafford Township Police Department’s DEU was able to secure three search warrants for the residences in Stafford Township.
