Police in a New Jersey town are asking the person who was expecting 50 pounds of marijuana in the mail to come claim the package.

The pot was delivered to a home in Hazlet. The homeowner called police, because it was addressed to someone who did not live at the residence.

Police say they were trying to figure out how to find the person when they opened the packages and discovered the marijuana in sealed bags. Officers wrote in a Facebook post, "If you were expecting these packages and would like to claim them, please come to Police Headquarters."

In the meantime, officers are trying to find the shipper and intended recipient.
