Rehoboth Beach police arrested a Denver, Colo., man after police say he sent a package containing 12 pounds of pot to his Realtor's office.

Andre D. Dismuke, 36, and his wife had rented a Rehoboth Beach unit for six weeks and arranged to send several packages of clothes and linens to the Realtor, said Chief Keith Banks of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department.

An employee at the Realtor's office opened a package May 26 and found the bundled marijuana with a street value of $18,000, Banks said.

When Dismuke and his wife arrived by car in Rehoboth Beach, Banks said police arrested him. Police found a small amount of marijuana and a glass pipe in the car, Banks said.

Police charged Dismuke with trafficking marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $10,500 secured bond. His wife was released.
