Garrett, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A postal delivery lands a Garrett couple in jail.

25-year-old Benjamin Hayes and his wife Brytanne were taken into custody on Thursday after police say they received a tip that an illegal package was coming to their home.

Inside the package was a pound of marijuana. They also confiscated drug paraphernalia and a loaded gun.

Both have been charged with dealing marijuana within a thousand feet of a youth program.

Their 3-year-old daughter who was in the home at the time of the bust is now in the custody of Child Protective Services.
