Juneau police made another drug bust Monday, arresting two men on suspicion of trafficking heroin and meth.
Juneau residents Clinton Konrad and Patrick Iler, both 29, were arrested Monday after Konrad tried to deliver a package containing the illegal drugs to Iler.
The package had been intercepted last week by United States Postal Service Inspectors, and most of the drugs had been removed.
According to a JPD release, the package was shipped from Inglewood, California. It contained about 112 grams of methamphetamine and 25.7 grams of heroin. The estimated street value of the drugs is $70,500 dollars.
Konrad and Iler were booked at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
