LEBANON — Two New Hampshire men face multiple drug charges after a tip from California led investigators to a delivery of 16 pounds of marijuana, police said Monday.

James Sampson, 32, of Canaan, and Eduardo Moran, 30, of Lebanon, were arrested last week following a lengthy investigation, police said in a release.

The sheriff's department in San Luis Obispo County, Calif., alerted Lebanon police that a large quantity of marijuana was being sent through the mail to a home in Lebanon, police said.

Local detectives and the New Hampshire Attorney General's Drug Task Force arranged for a controlled delivery, which led to search warrants and later arrest warrants for Sampson and Moran, police said.

Sampson was arrested Tuesday and Moran was picked up the next day, according to the release.

Sampson was charged with conspiracy to commit distribution of a controlled drug, a Class B felony.

Moran was charged with possession of a controlled drug and conspiracy to commit distribution of a controlled drug, both felonies.

Both were arraigned in Grafton County Superior Court and released on cash or surety bail, according to the release.
