NEW CASTLE COUNTY, Del. -

Police in New Castle County say they arrested a woman earlier this week who was found to have a little more than 50 pounds of marijuana in her car.

Police say the arrest was the result of a lengthy investigation that ended Monday.

According to investigators, members of the New Castle County Drug Control Squad were called to a local postal store, where five packages were delivered.

Police say a woman arrived at the store and was observed signing for the packages. The packages were then taken to her vehicle, police said.

According to police, the woman had a suspended driver's license.

Police say shortly after the woman drove away, officers conducted a traffic stop. A police K-9 officer was called to the location and managed to positively identify the drug, police said.

After executing a search warrant, police say they found the five tubular shaped cardboard packages with marijuana inside. In total, police say there was 50.2 pounds of marijuana.

The woman, 30-year-old Dana Bates, was taken into custody and has since been arraigned, police said.
