Police recovered approximately 12 pounds of marijuana that had been mailed from California.

Burlington Police got a substantial shipment of drugs off the streets this week and arrested two suspects for conspiracy to violate drug laws. 

According to a release posted onto the Burlington Police Department's Facebook page, the Burlington Police Department Drug Unit Seized approximately 12 pounds of marijuana on Thursday February 28. The marijuana had been mailed from California to Tanorama at 264 Cambridge Street.

Police executed a search warrant when two packages of marijuana were delivered to the business. The street value of the marijuana is estimated to be over $60,000.

Police charged the owner, Julia Symonds, 22, of Boston, on charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class D Drug, (Marijuana) and Conspiracy to Violate the Drug Laws.

Police also arrested Symonds brother, John Symonds, 25, of Winchester, who was charged with Conspiracy to Violate the Drug Laws. 

Both subjects posted bail and will be arraigned in Woburn District Court on Monday, March 4. This investigation is continuing in both Massachusetts and California, the release states.

Burlington Police were assisted in the investigation by U. S. Postal Inspectors from California and Massachusetts.

At least they're going after the top dogs. It would be a shame if they busted a 17-year old for having 2.8 grams and then screwed him by using a school-zone violation against him. What a waste of tax dollars that would be... scumbags.
