2 postal workers arrested in meth distribution case
MISSOULA, Mont. —
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office arrested two U.S. Postal Service contractors.
Anthony Friscia, 62, and Mary Friscia, 47, are charged with felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
Authorities say the two were USPS route drivers for the Polson Post Office and used the routes they ran to traffic methamphetamine into the Polson area from out of state.
An investigation was conducted with the aid of the U.S. Postal Inspector and the U.S. Marshall’s Office.
Officials say the postmaster identified a suspicious package. Investigators report the package was determined to have not been delivered to the address marked on the parcel and was located at the Friscia home in Polson.
We’re told almost half-a-pound of methamphetamine, $1,000 in cash and 10 firearms were seized.
The Friscias were booked and released from the Lake County jail.
