Three people are accused of a mail-order marijuana delivery ring that sent large amounts of marijuana to two Eau Claire locations.

A search of one of their Eau Claire residences netted more than 36 pounds of marijuana, authorities said.

Lindsy M. Beaver, 25, 3447 Hallie Lane, Tyler G. Meyer, 24, 403½ Water St., and David J. Stewart, 33, 912 11th St. W., Altoona, are each charged in Eau Claire County Court with felony counts of conspiracy to commit possession with intent to deliver marijuana and maintaining a drug trafficking place.

Beaver is also charged with two felony counts of bail jumping.

Stewart and Meyer are also charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance.

Meyer is also charged with a felony count of possession of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Signature bonds of $1,000 were set for Meyer and Beaver, who return to court April 24 and May 14, respectively.

A warrant was issued for Stewart’s arrest.

According to the criminal complaint:

A U.S. Postal Service inspector contacted authorities Jan. 11 about two suspicious packages that were being delivered to Eau Claire. They were both being mailed from California to Beaver and Meyer.

The postal inspector contacted authorities again on March 12 about two more suspicious packages being sent to Beaver and Meyer.

The package being sent to Beaver contained 2 pounds of marijuana. The package being mailed to Meyer contained about 5 pounds of marijuana.

The packages were delivered and accepted by Beaver and Meyer.

Later that day authorities executed a search warrant at Meyer’s residence. They found large quantities of drugs and drug paraphernalia, including more than 36 pounds of marijuana.

Authorities later learned that Meyer was Beaver’s boyfriend.

Meyer said the marijuana was being sent to him by Stewart.

Meyer said he sold the marijuana from his apartment. He sold the drug for $2,000 a pound and would send Stewart money.
