Posted: Updated:

Authorities are investigating a big drug bust that happened last week. On October 3, FedEx called the local drug task force after receiving a package with the illegal drug khat.

The package weighed about 113 pounds and was shipped from overseas to a West Fargo hotel. Officers say the suspects are mailing packages to area hotels under different names, contacting the hotel about staying the night, and then asking staff to sign for the package.

Police are warning hotel staff to watch for suspicious behavior and call police if they receive suspicious calls about accepting packages for guests.
