According to Tubbs, the marijuana was destined for a Buchanan group home. On Feb. 22, Sgt.

Nice job Buchanan police!

At least we didn't send it from here in Colorado

Nice to know the caliber of staff at this group home.

Now , that was pretty stupid.

Fed Ex than UPS are the preferred delivery specialists.

I think the pizza delivery will be quite busy in Buchanan for the next few months.
