CORNWALL – A Maxville man is facing drug possession and trafficking charges after trying to send pot through a Cornwall courier service.

Police say the suspect visited a local courier Thursday to ship a package to Prince Edward Island.

But when employees found out the delivery was marijuana, the jig was up and the man turned himself in at police headquarters.

The suspect, 51, will appear in court March 24 on possession of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking charges.
