A Superior man is facing a felony drug charge after authorities found more than six pounds of marijuana in his apartment in the 1600 block of North 18th Street.

Zachary Joseph St. Arnold, 29, faces possession with intent to deliver marijuana. He was bound over for arraignment Wednesday in Douglas County Court and remains free on a $3,000 signature bond. He was ordered not to use or possess any controlled substances or drug-related paraphernalia without a valid prescription.

According to the criminal complaint:

A U.S. Postal Inspector contacted the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 14 about a suspicious package set to be delivered to St. Arnold’s residence. The express overnight package was found to contain more than five pounds of suspected marijuana in vacuum-packed bags. A search warrant was granted by Douglas County Circuit Court Judge Kelly Thimm for the address before law enforcement officers delivered the package Sept. 15. After St. Arnold received the package and returned to his apartment, the officers entered and searched the building. In addition to the five pounds of marijuana in the package, officers found another pound of marijuana as well as a digital scale, baggies and drug paraphernalia in the residence. Officers also found additional cardboard boxes with shipping labels indicating they were sent by the same person who sent the package delivered Sept. 15. The labels on the packages dated back to September 2014.

If convicted, St. Arnold faces a maximum penalty of 12 years and six months in prison and a fine of up to $25,000. His next court appearance is Dec. 7.
