Police make drug bust at post office

Wrangell police, assisted by several other law enforcement agencies, arrested Wilson Taylor Boon, 32, on a felony drug charge at the post office May 19.

Boon was being held at the Wrangell jail as of Monday on a $10,000 cash bail.

He was arrested in possession of 84 grams of methamphetamine, almost three ounces, said Wrangell Police Lt. Bruce Smith.

“U.S. Postal Service employees in Wrangell intercepted a suspicious package. A search of the package revealed it contained a controlled substance,” according to a press release from the city. Boon was arrested when he picked up the package.

The investigation is ongoing.

Wrangell is part of the Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs task force, along with Petersburg and Juneau, which assisted with the arrest, as did personnel from the U.S. Postal Service and FBI.
