Carnival workers arrested when police find crack in doll

Sioux Falls police said they received word Saturday from police in Pearland, Texas, that a suspicious package was on its way to their city via FedEx, the Argus Leader (Sioux Falls) reported Wednesday.

“They ended up getting a search warrant on the package and found the doll with the drugs inside,” police spokesman Sam Clemens said. “They repackaged it and the undercover detectives delivered that package.”
