Police arrived around 8:40 a.m. and had a K-9 officer identify the drugs.

After the dog swept the building, police unwrapped the package and found 207 grams of marijuana in a Ziploc bag, which equals about 0.45 pounds.

The marijuana was placed into evidence at the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety and the case was handed over to a special investigations unit, according to the report.

Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
