BUTTE COUNTY, C.A. -- A local realtor is in hot water after officers in Butte County, California report intercepting a 92-pound marijuana shipment headed to South Carolina.

According to the case report, officer with the Butte County Sheriff's Office intercepted the 92-pound marijuana shipment addressed to James Michael Wiley's residence in York County, South Carolina.
