Police intercept illegal package bound for Twin Cities
Authorities intercept a package of a popular, and illegal, Middle Eastern plant bound for the Twin Cities.
La Crosse Police received a call from U.S. Customs saying they'd intercepted a package with an address to a residence in Holmen.
Once the packaged arrived in La Crosse, officers searched it and found an illegal drug known as khat.
Khat has leaves that contain an amphetamine, which is said to cause excitement, or euphoria.
Police say the package was going to be taken to Minneapolis.
No arrests were made because the local person who was to receive the package didn't know what they were actually going to deliver.
