    Police have charged Gabriel Austin, 38, and Lindsay Powell, 28, both of Suffield, with receiving shipments of marijuana in the mail.

    Two people have been charged with receiving shipments of marijuana in the mail.

    Gabriel Austin, 38, and Lindsay Powell, 28, were arraigned in Enfield Superior Court on Thursday. The two were arrested on Wednesday.

    Police searched their home at 41 Mayflower Lane in Suffield and found nearly 4 kilos of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, packaging materials and mailing labels, investigators said.

    Suffield Police and the U.S. Postal Inspection service determined Austin and Powell were repeatedly ordering shipments of marijuana from a supplier in California from September 2012 through January 2013, according to authorities. The pair would then sell the pot, police said.

    The street value of the marijuana seized from the home in Suffield was about $38,000.

    Austin and Powell each face multiple drug charges. They were held on $100,000 each.
