    Twenty bags of suspected marijuana were seized Tuesday night by Boston police at a building in the city's Dorchester neighborhood.

    Officers responded to 55 Morrissey Blvd. at about 6:45 p.m. to recover a package that had been mailed to someone at the building, which houses a few radio stations.

    Police said the substance in the bags is believed to be marijuana but it is being sent to a state lab for testing.
