Benzie County Man Federally Charged After Receiving Cocaine in Mail

A man has been federally charged for what investigators are calling one of the biggest drug busts in our area.

 Jason Lopez, arrested in Benzonia last Thursday, is accused of receiving two kilos of cocaine in the mail.

That amount is worth about $300,000.

The Benzie County Sheriff’s Department, Traverse Narcotics Team and United States Postal Inspection Service worked together on the investigation.

Lopez has now been federally charged with multiple drug crimes.
