FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of stealing a package from a mail carrier as part of a scheme to pick up marijuana has pleaded not guilty in federal court.

Raymond Stenson, of Enderlin, is charged in federal court with robbery, theft and assault. Authorities say he first followed the mail carrier into an apartment in an attempt to get the package, and then snatched it from the carrier outside of his mail van.

The carrier chased after Stenson and tackled him to get the package back. Stenson allegedly told the mail carrier he looked like someone who liked to smoke pot and said he would give him some if he could keep the package.

Trial is scheduled for Feb. 16. A federal public defender could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.
