Azya Burden, age 20, and Gerald "Vegas" Bowerman, age 31, were each charged with one count of Possession of Marijuana.
Agents from the Medina County Drug Task Force worked with U.S. Postal Inspectors on a joint investigation. The two were arrested after receiving a package containing the marijuana at their Bennington Blvd. residence.
Task force agents, Postal Inspectors and Brunswick police officers conducted surveillance on the residence throughout the morning. Once the package was received by Burden officers attempted to take her and Bowerman into custody. Both attempted to flee the area on foot but were arrested after a short foot pursuit.
Two additional people in the apartment also fled on foot. They were not immediately caught, however their identities are known and criminal charges are likely against each of them.
