Police say during a one-week period last year, a man had more than 5 pounds of high-grade marijuana mailed from California to his house in Springfield.

Robert L. Robinson, 43, was charged last week with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and unlawful use of a weapon after investigators say they stopped two pot shipments en route to Robinson's home in east Springfield.

According to a probable cause statement, authorities stopped a package on Nov. 30 that was being mailed from Redding, California to Robinson's home in the 1000 block of South Gelven Avenue because the package smelled like marijuana.

The Springfield Police Department hatched a plan to have the package delivered to the address on Gelven Avenue and then immediately execute a search warrant at the home, the statement says.

The next day, authorities left the package on the front porch of the home, and then waited, according to the statement.

About 7:20 p.m., a woman approached the home, picked up the package and stepped inside. Then police sprang into action, clearing the home and beginning their search, according to the statement.

The statement says police found multiple pounds of marijuana in the package. Officers also recovered a pistol, several empty packages with marijuana residue and more than $18,000 cash in the home.

When interviewed by police, the statement says, Robinson told authorities he did not know anything about the marijuana. He allegedly said the cash was from selling horses and he was holding the gun for a friend.

On Dec. 7, the post office inspector stopped another package that had been mailed from California to Robinson's home on Gelven Avenue, the statement says.

Authorities opened that package and again found multiple pounds of high-grade marijuana, according to the statement.

A bond recommendation from prosecutors says Robinson has a previous drug arrest out of California.

Online records indicate a warrant has been issued for Robinson's arrest. He does not have an attorney listed for this case.

Robinson faces up to 15 years in prison if he is convicted on the distribution charge.
