Grandma’s care package
TALLADEGA, Alabama — A package addressed from “Grandpa Henderson” in San Diego, Calif., to “Grandma Henderson” in Talladega, Ala., wasn’t ordinary mail, and it wasn’t picked up by any grandmother.
The package aroused suspicions among Talladega postal inspectors, who contacted the Talladega County drug task force. Task force commander Jason Murray said a trained drug-detection dog singled out the package, and law enforcement officers waited for someone to pick it up.
Three men did that Saturday.
