BETHANY BEACH, Del.- Delaware State Police say two men are facing drug and related charges after a package of marijuana was allegedly mailed to their house in Bethany Beach.

Police said detectives with the Sussex County Governor's Task Force and Drug Task Force were alerted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service on Tuesday about a package that was to be delivered to a house on the 29000 block of Cove Way. 

According to police, the contents of the package were examined by the Inspection Service to be a significant amount of marijuana and it was addressed to a man named Danny Mutz. With the assistance of the USPS, detectives said they converged on the home with the package Tuesday afternoon, and upon knocking on the door, made contact with 29-year-old Dennis Martinez outside the home. Martinez acknowledged the delivery by signing the acceptance form before GTF members converged, police said.

Upon noticing the troopers, police said Martinez attempted to run into the house but was quickly taken into custody without further incident.
 
Thirty-nine-year-old Daniel P. Mutz, who was inside the home, surrendered to the detectives without incident. Police said a search of the home was conducted and revealed 138.1 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, drug paraphernalia, more than $900 in suspected drug proceeds, as well as the 2093.4 grams (4.61 lbs.) of packaged marijuana.
 
Mutz and Martinez were transported back to Troop 4 where they were each charged with possession to deliver marijuana, possession with intent to deliver hallucinogen mushrooms, possession of marijuana, possession of hallucinogen mushrooms, second-degree conspiracy and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Martinez was additionally charged with resisting arrest.

Mutz was released on $10,400 unsecured bond while Martinez was released on $10,900 unsecured bond.
