    Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, have seized over 42 pounds of marijuana after being alerted by a U.S. postal inspector and a police dog about a suspicious package.

    The person who signed for it, 33-year-old Celso Nunez Baez of Manchester, consented to a package search and detectives found 16 pounds of the drug inside. They found nearly 10 pounds of marijuana in his home.

    Police said a FedEx delivery truck then showed up with a package for Nunez Baez, with similar markings as the one delivered by the postal service. A police dog gave a positive alert. Detectives got a search warrant and searched it, finding an additional 17 pounds of marijuana.

    Nunez Baez was charged with possession with intent to distribute; it wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
