Troy Blake, 47, of Lafayette is in jail in Vermilion Parish for allegedly picking up eight oz of crystal meth at the post office in Maurice.

Maurice Police were given a tip last week that a shipment of methamphetamine was being shipped through the mail. The package was intercepted, and police obtained a warrant to search the contents. The contents turned out to be 8 oz of crystal meth. Troy Blake was arrested when he picked up the package, along with 24-year-old Mark Harris of Plaquemine, who was riding in the car with Blake.
