State authorities arrested a Tulsa man this week after reportedly finding 14 pounds of a marijuana extract known as wax in a postal package.
Agents with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs made the discovery while serving a search warrant at a home in the 400 block of South 186th East Avenue on Thursday morning.
Agency spokesman Mark Woodward said the 14 pounds of wax — a popular marijuana product known for its high THC levels — in a package belonging to Brodie Garrett Braucher.
An arrest report states Braucher, 25, admitted to taking possession of the package and that he intended to sell it to another individual.
Braucher was arrested and booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of possessing/delivering a controlled drug with intent. He was released on $5,000 bail Thursday afternoon.
Woodward said agents requested the warrant after receiving a tip that the package would be at the home. He did not know the potential value of the wax, but he said the quantity is consistent with drug trafficking or distribution rather than personal product. With a typical street value of $30-$50 per gram, the value of the seized drugs could be as high as $300,000.
Narcotics officers said the marijuana concentrate was vacuum-sealed and packed in flat layers. They said it appeared to be home-made, as opposed to a product sold legally in a dispensary.
