Postal inspectors investigate suspicious packages

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

U.S. Postal Inspectors and Waco police are investigating several suspicious packages found at a local post office. Postal inspectors believe the packages contain drugs that were shipped from McAllen to Waco.

Law enforcement officials waited for someone to pick up the packages early Wednesday afternoon and were able to detain a few people at the Highlander Post Office on N. 19th St. Authorities have released those detained pending analysis of the material and further investigation. 

Postal Inspection Service spokesman Mike Sullivan says several packages weighing about 10 pounds were found by agents specializing in profiling drug shipment packages. An investigation ensued as well as the operation to make the arrests.

Authorities have not released information about what was in the packages and how many people were detained.
