A pretty special delivery landing two men in jail. The problem? What was in the package.

It was nearly 3 pounds of what the Chatham Savannah Counter Narcotics Team describes as high-grade marijuana.  

Agents got a tip from a Southern California department that someone was sending the pot to Savannah. They intercepted the package then made a delivery to a house on West 47th Street. 

Officers moved in and Thomas Mitchell tried to move out. They say he ran from the house with the package. But they grabbed him.

CNT said that in the house they found Paul Hill, marijuana already packaged for distribution, drug equipment, some pot plants and two stolen guns.  

Both men in jail on several felony charges and officers expect more arrests.
