The Hinds County Sheriff's Office Street Crimes Task Force seized a package containing ten pounds of high grade marijuana, shipped to a Byram home.
According to Sheriff Victor Mason, a label on the package indicated the marijuana was sent from El Paso Texas.
After getting a tip, investigators went to the Byram address, saw the package on the door step and set up surveillance. More than 5 hours later, a woman drove up and took the box with her.
Investigators then conducted a traffic stop on her at Siwell and Terry Road.
A drug sniffing K9 alerted investigators to the package. They then opened it and found the ten pounds of marijuana.
The driver of the car was identified as Vernisha Williams Sheriff of Jackson.
She has been charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
