BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police in Vermont say they’ve seized $100,000 worth of a potent marijuana extract often called “hash oil” that was mailed to a Bennington resident.

The Bennington Banner (http://bit.ly/2cRRIoq ) reports police say officers were made aware of a suspicious package on Monday and watched it be delivered to the resident, who denied knowing what was inside.

Police say the package contained 1,000 grams of hash oil in flat sheets about the size of an 8-by-10 envelope.

Officer Robert Murawksi says Monday’s seizure is unusual. He says that hash oil is typically found in dime-sized squares. The substance is often put in vaporizers or hollowed out cigarettes and cigars.

The oil is made by extracting THC from marijuana plants.

Police haven’t said if charges will be brought in the case.
