WUHAN, May 3 (Xinhua) -- Police in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, dressed as delivery men, seized a parcel containing drugs, according to local authorities.

The police with the anti-drug team of the public security bureau of the Jiang'an District received a tip late April that someone had mailed a box of suspicious objects from south China's Yunnan Province to a residential community in the district.

The police combed through the piles of parcels and found one of them giving off an odd smell. The police, disguised as delivery men, then waited for the suspect to fetch the parcel.

The police caught the man who came to take the parcel and seized 3 kg of magu, a stimulant composed of methamphetamine and caffeine, from the boxes in the parcel.

An initial investigation showed that the suspect, surnamed Xia, is a local of Wuhan. He bought drugs from Yunnan and attempted to sell them to earn money. Further investigation is underway.
