A Queens mailman was caught making special deliveries — of marijuana by the pound, police said Thursday.

U.S. Postal Service worker Christopher Aiken, 57, was arrested Thursday taking a 10-pound parcel of pot to a pair of buyers in Rosedale, cops said.

The postal service got an anonymous tip about a “drug issue” at the Rosedale Post Office, where Aiken works, and authorities soon identified a package they believe had drugs inside.

Cops and federal officers tracked the bundle and Aiken, who took it on his route Thursday morning, police said.

A BMW pulled up behind Aiken’s mail truck at 148th Ave. and 249th St. at 11 a.m., and the postman placed the cannabis container into the luxury car’s trunk, cops said.

After two men in the BMW handed Aiken cash, and a team of NYPD officers and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the USPS inspector general’s office swooped in and arrested all three, cops said.

Aiken, the BMW’s driver, Keron Mavour, 30, of Brooklyn, and his passenger, Lennon Gray, 30, of Queens face felony marijuana possession charges.
