Norwood Police Arrest Man for Possession of 6 Pounds of Marijuana

Norwood and State Police placed 24-year-old Romeo W. McCubbin under arrest for marijuana possession and possession of ammunition without a Firearm Identification Card.


On Tuesday Norwood Police arrested Romeo W. McCubbin, 24, for the possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of ammunition without a Firearm Identification Card (FID).

On Monday the USPS delivered a package to a residence in Norwood.  But it was later discovered that the recipient did not live at the resdidence and the package was returned.

Postal Investigators then indicated that the package contained marijuana.

"A male subject called the Post Office inquiring on the package indicating that he would pick it up," police said. "The USPS Inspector alerted the Massachusetts State Police Detective’s assigned out of the Narcotics Unit of the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office. Norwood and State Police Detectives set up surveillance."

At 2 p.m. on Tuesday McCubbin arrived to pick up the package. As he started to walk out, he was stopped by the Investigation Team which included a narcotics detecting K9.

After the K9 alerted police that there were drugs in the package, the box was opened and it was confirmed that it contained 6 pounds of marijuana.  McCubbin was then placed under arrest.

Investigators later discovered rounds of ammunition and McCubbin was then charged with possession of ammunition without a FID card.

McCubbin was arraigned in Dedham District Court on Wednesday.

Noticing that the individual is from NJ there appears to be a potential conspiracy charge to the occupants of the address used.

Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crime...to those that are REAL crimes. I was in Federal Prison for 5 years for a marijuana offense. No, it was not for simple possession. I was arrested aboard a Lockheed PV2 in Marianna, Florida...charged and convicted for conspiracy to import and distribute 12,000 pounds of marijuana. As my years in prison rolled by, what I did see were armed bank robbers, coming and going...while I still sat there for marijuana. Most of the bank robbers only spent 17 to 24 months. But, I and my fellow 'drug offenders,'...we stayed for YEARS. I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans...doing what Americans do best...living free. The book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank I would be honored by your review.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.

Time to concentrate on real crime, not people who smoke pot. And to legalize it and make believe it comes out of the sky is phony. I guess it's only a misdamener and you get a ticket but it's time to grow up about pot smokers. They are not hurting themselves or anyone else. You can be sure when pot is finally legalized the ones growing it and selling it will be political hacks or the ones that complained the loudest before it was legalized. Anyone want to make a bet i'm wrong?

I commented on the 6 pound pot bust in Norwood Patch yesterday and asked anyone if they wanted to take me up on my "bet" that it wouldn't be long before the politically connected "hacks" would get on the pot bandwagon and look for a "slice" of the medical pot gold mine. Well people read page 8 of todays Herald it didn't take the hypocrite's long to incorperate 5 Massachusetts companies to be the labs that test the pot to "insure" that those patients got quality pot. Really? Really?? Really??? Also read what Elisabeth Warren has to say about the Banks that are laundering billions of dollars for the drug cartels and get a slap on the wrist but if you are caught with 1 oz of cocain it's straight to jail and 3 times it is life in prison. I don't advocate for cocaine i would just like the standards to be equal and fair for everyone. Does anyone else care that not one banker ever went to jail for crashing our economy? And now those same banks are laundering billions for drug cartels. When is enough gonna be enough???

Daniel Hogan... Sir, I agree with you 100%. If you can vote, get rid of those legislators who are standing in the way. Within my lifetime, I have watched people who 'serve' for decades. They ARE the problem...get those fools out of office. I cannot vote. I have a felony conviction for a marijuana offense. And I have been paying the price for over 30 years. There are thousands of Americans who have been removed as voters for pot offenses. Please, change these laws...they do not belong in a free America. Per your comment, "When is enough gonna be enough???" You speak the truth, Mr. Hogan.
Daniel Hogan March 12, 2013 at 10:00 PM
Thank's FlyingTooLow, I think in Massachusetts after you serve your sentence you are again able to vote again. I may be wrong but I don't think so. As to when enough is gonna be enough I'm starting to think people think the rich and powerful politically connected don't have to abide by the same standards and laws that the rest of us do. Maybe it's a Tale of Two Cities time in America.
FlyingTooLow March 13, 2013 at 04:02 PM
@ Daniel Hogan... Yes, in several states, once sentence is completed, the right to vote is restored. Not so with a Federal offense. Only with a Presidential pardon.
