A Boaz woman is facing drug charges over a letter full of marijuana that went to the wrong address.

The letter was addressed to a woman in Boaz; instead, it was inadvertently sent to the Boaz Police Department.

Lisa Sue Blankenship, 50, is now facing marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia charges.

Boaz Police said they received the letter at the jail, and it was inspected, per department policy, before passing it on to an inmate.

That is when they found the letter with marijuana inside.

Boaz Police then realized it was intended to go to 101 Walnut Street instead of 101 Line Street - where the jail is located about a block away.

Police went to the residence and after obtaining consent to search, marijuana and paraphernalia were discovered.

The investigation continues into who sent the letter.

Blankenship, meanwhile, denied knowing anything about the letter with marijuana.
