Wareham police said Wednesday that they seized several packages of marijuana that were wrapped up as Christmas presents and mailed to a house.

Police served a search warrant on the Plymouth Avenue home Dec. 12. They arrested 23-year-old Zachary Driscoll, who accepted the package. Investigators said they're still trying to determine who sent it.

The package contained 8 to 10 pounds of marijuana wrapped in 25 plastic baggies. The drugs had a street value of about $20,000.
