United States Postal Inspectors contacted Detective Sgt. Joseph Soto and Detective Sgt. Michael Musto on April 18 and notified the detectives that a shipment of suspected marijuana was to be delivered to a Wyckoff home.

The package was revealed to contain two bricks of marijuana weighing a total of one pound and five ounces, police said. It had been purchased in California for $1,000, and the marijuana would have a street value of about $3,500, according to authorities.

Kornblum was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana over 50 grams.
