8-31-04 - A mix up in a mailing address has landed two Marietta women behind bars. The trouble started last week when a package sent from Nevada containing two bags of crystal methamphetamine arrived at a Marietta home, via the US mail. The address was correct, but the name wasn’t.
The homeowners turned the drugs over to police, who then tracked down the home the package was supposed to go to. The bags of drugs even had the dealer and recipient’s name on them. Police set up a sting and delivered the package to the correct home, where they arrested two women - Neva Kristina Williams, 39, and Kimberly Ann Block, 38.
