(ABC 6 News) - A Blooming Prairie man is facing multiple charges after a tip from MSP Airport Police led to a significant drug bust.

21-year-old Dylan Okorie faces eight felony drug charges, including possession with intent to sell in the first degree. 

On Feb 8, an MSP Airport Police officer contacted Austin Police and advised that her police canine indicated on a suspicious package. The search of the package uncovered a large amount of marijuana and 30 mushroom candy bars. 

On Feb. 9, law enforcement used an undercover officer posed as a delivery driver to drop off the package. Shortly after, surveillance found two people arriving to bring the package inside the home, then got into a vehicle and the search warrant was executed.

One of the men indicated that the package was sent to a marijuana dealer named Dylan Okorie. Detectives removed about 2,633 grams of marijuana from the package and replaced it with sand. Later that day, Okorie arrived at the location and retrieved the package.

Okorie is being held on $100,000 bond.
