Man Busted Shipping Pot Through UPS


On December 16, 2004, the Bureau of Criminal Investigations Narcotics Unit was contacted by the United Parcel Services regarding a suspicious package that was received by the Waldorf UPS Facility and scheduled for delivery to a residence in Mechanicsville. A Detective responded to the facility and took custody of a package which contained several pounds of Marijuana. A Detective from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations posing as a UPS Delivery person delivered the package to the Mechanicsville home. Once the package was delivered, a search warrant was executed and the package was recovered. Further investigation revealed that a subject from Crownsville, Maryland who was later identified as Harry Benjamin Stepney Jr, had the package shipped to the Mechanicsville Home. Stepney was arrested on December 17, 2004 when he responded to the residence to recover the package. Stepney was charged with possession of Marijuana. The circumstances surrounding the investigation will be presented to a St. Mary’s Grand Jury and additional charges maybe filed. The estimated street value of the recovered Marijuana is between $15,000 to $20,000.
