BLOOMINGTON — A Normal man admitted his connection to a package containing 24 pounds of marijuana, a prosecutor said Friday at the suspect's bond hearing on felony drug charges.

Jeffory Lahr, 46, is charged with marijuana trafficking and unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to deliver the drug.

Lahr told agents with the Illinois State Police Task Force 6 drug unit that the package delivered to his residence in the 100 block of Liberty Road had no ties to other people at the address, according to Assistant State's Attorney Jeff Horve.

"It's all mine," Lahr told officers as they seized a package containing marijuana worth $100,000 on the street, the prosecutor told Associate Judge Sarah Duffy

The prosecutor said the package originated in Colorado and the 21 packages of marijuana inside were intended to be sold in Illinois and Michigan.

The drug investigation by the multicounty drug enforcement unit focused on drug activity between Colorado and the Midwest, according to the prosecutor.

Lahr was jailed in lieu of posting $100,035.
