THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A suspicious package delivered from China turned out to contain a drug Thomas County Narcotics agents said they had never seen before. 

Britt Ochsenbein was arrested Friday after surveillance footage showed him receiving the package that contained synthetic marijuana.


Thomas County Narcotics/Vice Commander Kevin Lee said, "There were two packets that had a powdery substance in it.  We have gotten some synthetic marijuana in the past, but it was already in a form to look like marijuana.  This was just two packets of powder."


Lee said narcotic agents worked with Homeland Security and the U.S. Postal Service to charge Ochsenbein with two counts of possession of a schedule one drug.
