A 23-year-old Belleville man trying to ship $3,500 worth of marijuana across the county got busted after postal inspectors sniffed out then reported the illicit parcel to cops, according to the .
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.
Cops set up surveillance and allowed the inspectors to deliver the parcel.
A subsequent investigation by Wyckoff Police lead to the arrest of Scott Kornblum, a Belleville resident.
Kornblum, 23, had arranged to have the package delivered to his mother's Franklin Avenue home while she was on vacation, police said.

Kornblum was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana over 50 grams.
He was released on his own recognizance and the complaint has been referred to Bergen County Superior Court.
