Juneau man was arrested on drug charges after a K-9 indicated a suspicious package contained drugs, according to police.
Buck Robert Mills, 43, was arrested Tuesday on charges of second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and for violating conditions of release, according to the Juneau Police Department, which announced the arrest in cooperation with the Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs Task Force.
On Saturday, Feb. 11, SEACAD intercepted a suspicious parcel that was shipped to Juneau from Washington. Police were alerted to the parcel’s illegal content after K-9 Buddy indicated there were possibly drugs inside. After executing a search warrant, police say it was determined the package contained 30 grams of heroin, with an estimated street value of approximately $9,000.
On Tuesday, Feb. 14, SEACAD delivered the package to its intended destination, a post office box at the Mendenhall Valley Post Office. The package was picked up by a 43-year-old man, who then delivered it to Mills in the 5000 block of Glacier Highway, according to police. Upon the package being opened, SEACAD contacted and arrested mills.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 4 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 23, in Juneau, according to the Alaska Court System.
