50 pounds of pot found in traffic stop

A New Castle woman is behind bars after she picked up a package full of pot from a UPS store.

The County's Drug Control Squad had been notified about the package--and pulled over Dana Bates for driving with a suspended license after she picked it up Monday.

Police say they found 50 pounds of pot packed into five tubular shaped cardboard packages.

Bates is being held on $30,000 on drug charges.
