Authorities have seized a half pound of high grade marijuana from a Fort Dodge barber shop. An inspector with the U.S. Postal Service identified a suspicious package in Des Moines and later obtained a search warrant. The inspector then notified the Webster County Drug Task Force informing them of the package containing the marijuana.

The package was then delivered to the One Stop Barbershop. Fort Dodge law enforcement officers had a search warrant and then seized the marijuana. The owner of the barber shop, Benjamin Clement, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear for an initial appearance. Drug charges are pending at this time.
