Indians pitcher Chris Perez and his wife Melanie have been charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of controlled substance after a search warrant was served at their Rocky River home Tuesday.

Police said the evidence examined from a suspicious package delivered to the home contained a little more than a third of a pound of marijuana, or 163.9 grams, and Chris Perez admitted marijuana found in his home was for his own use.

The Perez delivery, addressed to a “Brody Baum” and sent as priority mail from Los Angeles, was cited by Postal Inspector Marc Kudley for a smell of marijuana, according to a United States Postal Service report. A Cleveland police drug-sniffing K9 confirmed the smell. Baum is Melanie Perez’s maiden name, according to the report.

On Monday, the USPS obtained federal search warrants for the parcel, which contained approximately 6.2 ounces of marijuana concealed in four separate zip lock bags greased in Vaseline, two plastic zip lock containers and wrapped in a shirt.
