Police Find $10K in Meth inside Teddy Bear

CHELSEA, Mass. (AP) — A Chelsea man is facing drug charges after allegedly receiving a Valentine’s Day teddy bear through the mail authorities say was stuffed with $10,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine.

Lawrence Ligocki was freed on $150 bail after pleading not guilty to drug possession and trafficking charges.

Prosecutors said Monday that on Feb. 5, postal inspectors notified police of a suspicious package addressed to Ligocki. A state police drug sniffing dog confirmed the presence of drugs inside the bear. It was delivered to his home by a postal inspector posing as a mail carrier. When Ligocki signed for it, he was presented a search warrant.

Authorities allege they found 96 grams of crystal meth inside the teddy bear and more in the home.

Ligocki said he wasn’t expecting the package.
